Err.. Shyam, haven't you heard? Pluto has been downgraded from planet to really large space rock. Maybe you should pick Neptune - almost as remote, but occasionally comes in within the orbit of Uranus...

Without nitpicking about poor little Pluto's status, that's what I would like to be, too, if I were a planet. I love the thought of being remote and undisturbed!
