    It's true. A real intellectual can be very cool

    and aloof on one hand and then so disarmingly sweet that you forget how a moment ago you felt like the thickest brick on the planet. I love the lofty thinker! The awkward small talker! The open hearted!

    Be brave, be beautiful

    and be as strong as nature ... complex but grounded with routes so deep and set. Take the chance sometimes! Do what is right for you.

    Douglas Hofstadter is one of those people,

    I have always wanted to know what it is like to

    be "normal" , so this year I tried. I tried watching the television shows I hear people talking about, listening to the music played on the radio, dressing like other woman my age in my area, and just generally trying to fit it with the society where I live. It didn't last long...

    Intellectuals floor me in the same way pretty

    guys capture other women. I would've happily been Professor Robert Reich's love slave---all 4'11" of him. It's one of my weaknesses; once I discover a person's interested in philosophy, physics, literature or advanced math, I'm immediately in awe---and a tad intimidated.

    Usually an intellectual person has a different

    pattern of thought than other people which will draw you to them, and trust me anyone who can change the way you think to the better is a golden ticket. Thinking is life. And changing the way of thinking is life changing.
