diddakoi asks: Are guys actually intimidated by smart women? Do they really find intelligence unattractive, or is that one of those outdated fallacies?

Speaking of 'Coraline,' go back to the previous entry to read about the Special Handcrafted Box I got from the movie's publicity team. I've also added a link to pictures of someone else's box--it looks like the team may have sent out fifty different, unique boxes. Really, really nicely done there. As soon as I can beg, borrow or steal a digital camera, I'll post pics of mine.
