Seafood, anyone?

commentsSo Yao Ming has sworn off shark fin, a Chinese delicacy which also happens to come from an endangered species. Which is cool that he’s speaking out about it, though it also sounds like the dish is so engrained in Chinese high-society that it’ll take a whole lot more than one ball-bouncing celebrity to change the traditional ways. But here’s why I wanted to blog about the news:

…[Yao Ming is] an adored star who once played for the Shanghai Sharks, [and] his girlfriend, the 6-foot-2 basketball star Ye Li, is a member of the Shanghai Octopuses…

Does this not totally sound fabricated, like it’s straight out of The Onion? I love it.

Hi! I'm Rachel, and this is my blog. I've tended to assume that if I ever blogged, it'd be a sappy diary. But based on what I've favored reading in other posts, I'm going to do this instead: pluck out isolated, varied things/ideas/experiences I find engrossing, try to choose the few right words out of a potential million, and hopefully cleanse my writing skills in the process. Because, you know, when I was little and was questioned about a future career, my answer was typically: "I'm going to be an author."

Oh, and I'm an aspiring film connoisseur. See my ratings at IMDB.
