While I’m tempted to say “Gesundheit”, I will refrain. It seems I’ve made the newspapers once again. This time in Belgium… and China. This is not the same story run in The Independent last week. I went from Euro to Global in a shake. The Belgium paper lifted copy from my site (and photos of me and Linus!). In particular, they published blog entries from only two days ago. Thankfully, I stumbled upon an excellent service: Press Display enables you to view 200 newspapers, from 50 countries, in their original form and layout. And, the papers are available before they appear on newsstands in their respective countries.
I have to say, this reminds me of bat mitzvah parties. You’re handed a wooden bat and instructed to pretend you’re about to swing. A photo is taken, and suddenly, you’re superimposed on a magazine cover titled, “All-Star Stephanie Klein Can Handle More Than Just Balls.” Okay, so that’s not what it said. The Belgium paper lists me in good company, as I share page space with mattresses, outdoor furniture, and smoothies. Can I say it now: Oh dear god.
The China Daily paper calls me, “A love-seeking doll.” Is it me, or does this sound like a novelty item? And I love how “I’m a 34C” translates to “Mijn cupmaat is 90C.” Think about it, a boob really is a cup of meat.
