As a Mexico resident...

...and in order to prevent the swine flu from permeating my cuerpo, I have lysoled my desk, mouse, computer and phone.

And my co-workers.


(Kidding. Sort of.)

Update: I just sent this to my co-workers. Because I'm me.

Subject: In order to keep our offices germ-free & healthy!

According to the CDC

Practice healthy habits to help stop the spread of germs
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water. This removes germs from your skin and helps prevent diseases from spreading.
  • Use waterless alcohol-based hand gels (containing at least 60% alcohol) when soap is not available and hands are not visibly dirty.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze and put your used tissue in a wastebasket.
  • If you don't have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your upper sleeve, not your hands.
  • Wash your hands after coughing or sneezing, using soap and water or an alcohol-based hand gel.
  • Follow all local health recommendations. For example, you may be asked to put on a surgical mask to protect others.


  1. Swine flu makes me nervous. There was a case in wood county!

  2. Good. And stay away from pigs please.

  3. (Nadja. Consider this: At least you're not living in Mexico and currently pregnant.)

  4. Good, keep lysoling everything within 20 feet of you guys.

  5. Ky, seriously I think I would either
    a. Die from paranoia
    b. get on a plane (with my own source of oxygen) and go elsewhere

  6. I know. They said Texas is the WORST state. great. I guess I won't touch anybody and become "that" mother that won't let anybody touch her baby without washing first!
