Cosmo's Guide to Meeting More Guys (Cosmopolitan)

Cosmo's Guide to Meeting More Guys

Make him happy
Fake yourself right into a real orgasm.
Give him what he needs.
A happy lover comes back
and I have to wait for him.

Enjoying your breasts helps you feel confident
but a flat-chested girl should spend
a fortune on outrageous lingerie.

Women's self esteem dips
So we're more likely to spend money on things
that make us feel more attractive, like
slimming must have tops.
Some clothes really do make you look fat.
You'll never meet expectations without shrinking.

I feel flowery and feminine
Like how a real woman should.

Embrace who you are
Fake yourself.

Attack and Revival: Harmony (how to play guitar instructional packet & history textbook)

Attack and Revival: Harmony

Relax from the palm of you hand
beyond the fingers to your wrist.
Memorize the melody.
Sing, strum or whistle the tune following the rhythmic pattern.

Disturb the flourishing businessmen
and their kingdom of uncivilized heroes and their civil war.

The government held the people in mythology
thinking that no need was seen to improve The Kingdom.

The flowering artistic minds were conducting a period of upheaval with song.
Picking the strings
Thumbing the strings
Strumming the chords.
Paint the scenes on the walls.

The king lost control of his nobles
a gradual collapse of government.

Curl the fingers in toward the palm of your hand
Hold the guitar against your body.

The songs you sing return the people
to their ancient independence and their new prosperity.
They came to life in the arts.
People living in harmony.

Part of the Family (Digital Collage: NY Times Online)

Part of the Family

A home keeps me grounded
my family is my world.
A consistent household of love.

We were strangers at birth
with no dynamics
only our family connections.
You never think you can
love somebody that much.

Save your smile for
your parents
your grandparents
your siblings
your aunts or uncles.
A smile so big
It will melt their hearts.

Save your smile for your family
Because they love you
more than you can ever think.

Side Effects

Any woman should understand
the benefits and risks of male association.

Sharp chest pain.
Sudden, severe, crushing.
A history of heartache.

Suffering depression.
Lack of energy, loss of appetite
Irregular numbness, nervousness, tenderness.

Women are developing and dying
of heartaches or pain.

Don't show weakness.

It is temporary.
It will gradually disappear.

Unbound: A Self Portrait (The New Yorker & fortune)


A slightly goofy-looking artist
Twenty something.
She is obsessed with sex and sass;
Studying friends and former lovers.
She can't feel; can't cry;
Can't think beyond language as a writer.
She tries to kill her heart with her cauterizing wit.

Inside her head there is always something beautiful.
A luminous, surreal world,
as lush and limpid as a dream
A dream of love.
Magical, whimsical and always thrilling.
She walks a tightrope between
reality and imaginative freedom.

Her broad shoulders and broad smile,
The most utterly lost of all days is
that on which she has not laughed.

Daring, gorgeous and outlandish
in that silent world.

This is what it is to love an artist.

At War (Digital Collage: NY Times Online)

At War

Things went from bad to worse
the inevitable conflict
sooner rather than later.
Distorted or ignored.

We should not be so quick to condemn
the military elite.
Ending wars is not easy.

Enemies at home,
Misguided and dangerous.
Fear, hatred: a  natural catastrophe,
With no human authors.

American against its government.
All were guilty or none were.
We should not be so quick to condemn.

Total Secret (multiple receipts)

Total Secret

The return of the-- the Angel
A gift.
Sexy as always
Shrunken, fit.

Have a fabulous experience.
More benefits.
Endless indulgence.

Entry Method:
V card swiped.
Thanks for your merchandise.

We are

Be old fashioned.
Live better.

The Fruit of Patience (Fortunes from Fortune Cookies)

The Fruit of Patience.

You're not afraid of storms,
For there are none so wonderful as your own.
You're learning to sail your ship.
Trust your intuition.
Have peace and find joy.

The smart thing to do is
To reduce the complicated to the simple.
Your emotions are right on the surface,
but that's okay.
You always say it better.

What is the meaning of life?
The entire sum of existence is just
the magic of being needed by one other person.

God can heal a broken heart,
but He has to have all the pieces.

Do a Favor, and Honor You (Fortunes from Fortune Cookies)

Do a Favor, and Honor You

Ignore heavy chains of worry.
Today's a day to nourish yourself.
Feed yourself well.
Never do anything half way.
You can be the candle
or, the mirror that reflects it.
Go the whole way.

There are two ways to failure
The road not found
then the path of idle hours.

Other people will shorten
Abort, retry, ignore.

Honor yourself.
Forge persistence if you aim to.

The majority of the word "can't" is "can."
