Planetary structural layer cake, the best thing since those solar system lollipops. Add some similarly spirited art geekery with add a side of Mondrian cake.

  Dear Caetie,
  
  Use it.

This note has some of the best advice I’ve ever received, especially given its context. It was tucked into a shot glass in Death Valley, where I was celebrating my 21st birthday with five cool friends I had recently met (love college).



So Malkah, Sooz, Liza, Josh and Clif — thanks, wherever you are.

DC feels like a swamp right now.
I was all set to dig up a bunch of old maps and urban plans that show how DC was built on a swamp, which is why it’s so freakin damn humid here in July and August, and what were George Washington and Pierre L’Enfant thinking.
But when I started my research by googling “dc swamp,” what I found were these links:
DC Mythbusting: Built on a Swamp?
Washington built on a swamp? Think again
Built on a swamp and other myths of DC
We do have a Swamp Trail on Roosevelt Island, but that’s about it.
So, that stymied that idea. Time to go eat some ice cream instead.
