Be artistic. Music will get the most immediate results, but other forms of art will also work. Writing, painting, and acting are all half-endearing, half-impressive, and half-sexy. (But Cassandra, that’s too many halves, you say. To which I reply: correcting my math skills is not sexy).
Go read the whole entry here: it's hilarious and very, very true.
Edited to add: Wow, dude, six comments and they're all icon squees? Instead of replying to each, I'll just say it here -- yoink at will, I made it! And I put my icon journal's name in it so people don't have to remember to credit! :) If you want to friend the icon journal, I plan (eventually) to make and post an edited version of this icon that's both fixed (like, "MOW THE LAWN" will be changed to "MOTHERLAND"), and synched exactly with the flash video. /edit
