Magnetic Attraction

Over eight months ago I moved into 321 Chadbourne, a dormitory in the Central area of the University of Massachusetts. I have been slowly cleaning and packing up this room over the past week in preparation to leave it for good this Friday. On the first day I moved in, I put up a set of magnetic poetry on my fridge. I picked up the set for free at last year's Siren Festival in Coney Island. Because the Siren Fest is curated and sponsored by the Village Voice, the words all relate to some form of classified ads that the Voice is famous for, among other things. Throughout the past eight months, friends and family have come to visit and rearranged the words to form phrases, as one would do with magnetic poetry. I have never touched the magnets since putting them up randomly in September. Before I pack up the words for good, I thought it would be fun to post here the phrases that have survived:
