Raw fish and babies

So Kate Moss and her boyfriend Jamie Hince went out for sushi today in London. Boyfriend and possible baby father? The UK press has been buzzing about it for weeks.


The dreaded bumpwatch.

So even though she was smoking on vacation in Thailand, Kate being Kate, pregnancy rumours continue to swirl. They are pointing to her stomach in these photos as new evidence.

But what of the raw fish deal?

Almost all of my friends (and now my beloved cousin Cat) have been making babies the last few years. I’ve heard enough of it to know what the alleged “no” foods are. Coffee is one. And raw fish too.

Do Japanese people birth deformed children?

Oh here it comes. Your emails.

Culturally I guess we all have our banned items for baby gestation.

My mother for instance always talks about bananas. It’s an old wives’ phobia from the village. I can always hear her in my head – you not crazy because mommy so smart mommy no eat banana when mommy carry you! And then her voice gets lower, well not really, when she conspiratorially announces to anyone listening about the lady she knew down the hall who kept eating bananas against the advice of all the grandmas and the daughter who suddenly started having seizures at 8 years old.

Oh lawd, my Squawking Chicken mother.

And please. Please ease up on your all caps emails about the absurdity of the banana ban. You don’t have to convince me that my mother is full of sh-t.

But the whole pregnancy diet across cultures discussion can be a rather interesting one. When it comes to that issue, you ever notice that everyone you talk to insists that THEY are the authority on it? That THEY are totally right? And only them?

How did we tangent all the way over here from a cokehead and her possible crack baby?

Kate Moss could be pregnant. The end.

PS. There is the argument that Kate went to a sushi restaurant but only ate the cooked rolls but to me that's like going to McDonald's and ordering a salad.
