an unusually mild august night in portugal
It was worth the wait. Not a critic, a little jealous that you can maintain this everyday. In no way shape or form could I do that.

And you say you're not a genuis.

I do remember Marcos ... good guy and the ladies just LOVED HIM!! The thing that I remember most was that no matter how much attention he received from women it didn't seems to phase him at all. A lot of guys our age would have been super arrogant about it!!! I, obviously, never had those sort of problems.

Well, thanks, and shucks.

I believe in multiple intelligences, that the usual view of intelligence as a single spectrum is off-balance. In a lot of ways, I'm more or less a moron. In fact, I think it's being a moron in a lot of ways that kind of forced me to develop book smarts as a coping mechanism.

And don't let Beau fool ya--he was a bit of a lady's man himself. In fact, speaking of multiple intelliegnces, Beau is my case study! Such a better musician and chess player, and he is *astoundingly* likable... seriously, he's got that whole Will Rogers "never met a man I didn't like" shtick *down*, effortlessly. (And the feeling is generally mutual, across all these groups.) But still, between the two of us, I've always been the book smart one.

So...Beau is less moronic?

While I was on the cruise last week, the bartenders at the Schooner Bar on the ship called me "their smart girl." (I figured out their bar tricks before anybody else did.) As the week went on they asked me what I was going to school for, and when I said "meteorology, math and physics" they were like "Wow! You really are smart!" I responded with "I have plenty of stupid moments." And one of them replied "So does everybody else."

It's not just that you're smart, it's how you apply it that makes you KIRK ISRAEL: The Genuis.
