But... can they cook?

I have this little theory that the way people are programmed is a little like the way you set your characters' personalities on The Sims. You get a set number of "points" to play with, and you have to spread them about different traits about the person, whether it be attractiveness, intelligence or personality/social skills.

My reasoning is that you can get people who are attractive and intelligent, but perhaps not the nicest people. Or extreme people who may be extremely beautiful, but a little bit of a bimbo and a bitch. And then you get the mediocre average people who kind of hover evenly between the three - I know, it sounds horrible to say something like this.

Lately, though, I keep meeting these absolutely gorgeous people who are talented and sweet. They are so awesome it is almost sickening - I say almost, because they are so lovely you can be sickened by them. Then the first thing that comes to mind is, "But... can they cook?"
