You should only join if you really miss the ocean! Let's go!

A Vicious Contest: Who Misses the Ocean More?

It's that time of year: spring break season! If you're near a coast, you may visit that most picturesque of places... yes, the beach, the ocean, "down the shore!" For all those secret pirates or merpeople in love with sea salt, I know how you feel. It's certainly been weeks since you started pining for the sea's sight, sound, and splash. But who misses the beach and the ocean more: you, or these folks?

I'm sure that you miss the beach more than Anakin Skywalker.

"But it's a natural exfoliant, Ani!"

Do you miss the ocean more than Percy Jackson, water demigod, does?

Initially, I looked at you and thought, "No way could you miss the ocean spray more than Percy Freakin' Jackson." But now that I'm thinking more about it, I realize that he really spends a lot of time away from it, in almost every book except the second one. Hmm... maybe because HE CARRIES HIS WATERY POWERS WITH HIM EVERYWHERE and therefore doesn't really miss the ocean, as you certainly do?!

I don't know- Lilo seems to love the ocean; do you miss it more than she does?

Without Lilo, Stitch would not end up loving the ocean. She is truly doing the Lord's work. She only has to take a short walk to arrive at the beach, though, so that might lessen her feelings of missing it.

Wow. Jack Johnson is a great lover of the ocean, but then so are you!

Jack Johnson surfs, sings about the ocean all day, and inspires us to do the same. What have YOU been doing with your life? Missing the ocean? Well... Jack Johnson lives there like Lilo does. All this data culminates in a very interesting, ambiguous result: no result.

I'm pretty sure you don't miss the ocean more than DARLA'S SLAVES.

These fish were kept captive in a tank where they were tortured by an annoying preteen. I will not entertain the thought that you miss the ocean more than they do. It's sickening that you even think you might win this contest at this point. Please stop.

Melody might love the ocean too much.

She would have done anything to choose the ocean over her family. You don't even want to be like her.

On the beach/on the ocean/at Tortuga = the life of Jack Sparrow, constantly.

This pirate has a beautiful relationship with the beach and the sea; he regards his ship as the embodiment of freedom! He's drunk all the time and he probably never showers, but you know, he really loves the ocean.

Here's hoping you make the voyage to the shore soon- and that the sun goes with you.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.

The Mets And Me

They may be the worst sometimes, but this baseball team has given me more than I could ask for.

On September 3rd, 2001, a sea of children littered my home's navy-carpeted den to watch baseball during my dad's 40th birthday extravaganza. A baseball game flickered on the TV, and a red and blue bubble of a scoreboard sat in the bottom right corner of the screen. The New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies were in a wild game at Veterans' Stadium. As I, a five-year-old boy with a jumble of curly blonde hair, sat in the back of the kid clump, I wondered which team I should root for. After a long debate with myself, I decided that I should root for the team that's winning (duh). But, as the ninth inning rolled around with the Phils maintaining a 7-5 lead, some magic occurred. The Mets put up five runs in one frame, stunning the Phillie fans in the room and winning the game 10-7.
