Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor has seemingly settled into the slower pace of life in the District, though there's one thing that still gets her surly -- ordering takeout. "I go to New York, I order food, it's at my door in 10 to 15 minutes. OK?" she told the New York Times. But in D.C., "there isn't a place I call where it doesn't take 45 minutes," Sotomayor said. She also said getting food delivered to the Supreme Court is a disaster, thanks to security. "By the time you get downstairs you may add another 15 minutes to the 45 minutes. And the food is ice-cold."

Sotomayor's memoir, "My Beloved World," comes out Tuesday, so she talked in advance about what it's been like to move to D.C.'s U Street neighborhood, a part of town the New York Times considers "scruffy." "It has a touch of the East Village in it," she said. "I picked it because it's mixed. I walk out and I see all kinds of people, which is the environment I grew up in and the environment I love."
