OMG, is that what you look like? Another myth shattered. I always imagined you looked like Kevin Bacon.

Someone else thought I was 5’8″ and pudgy. I’m 6’2″ and thin.

I imagined more of a Matt Damon myself.

Somehow I thought you’d have glasses, though not as tall as 6’2″.

Anyway I hope you had fun. I wonder if the PSB has a “Dang An” on you.

That’s cool, a tour around “Truth Towers” as Zhuan Jia calls the China Daily offices on his site Leaking State Secrets. I can’t remember the last time I read the China Daily but I think it was around 1992. I’m serious.

By the way, I enjoyed reading Leaking State Sectrets for the first time yesterday. Some nice posts and full loads of of humour. Imagethief remains the best written China-related blog by far, and the humour there is also impressive but LSS is a fine site.

It’s a blogspot site but here’s a link that should get fellow China residents there. Well worth checking out.

By the way, like Sam_S, I also imagined Richard to be about 5’8″, fairer and fatter – I see that I was wrong on all three counts. Still, good to see the face behind the posts.

Breaking news:
Zhuan Jia has been arrested!
Instead of leaking state secrets, he will be prosecuted for leaking duck photos…

Colour me surprised. I was expecting ageing liberal hippy. I got mild-mannered possible serial killer. I was expecting something grand, whether it be handsome or hideous. Instead, and I hope you don’t take offence at this Richard, but you are as white bread/corn fed as they come. I can’t believe you are just so ordinary Richard. Please don’t dissppoint me anymore, at least tell me you have body parts stored in your freezer.

Mild-mannered serial killer? I’m neither, I’m afraid, nor am I quite as white-bread as the picture may imply. I’m tall, dark and Mediterranean, not to mention dazzlingly handsome.
