Germaphobes – Wacko or Insightful?

Laugh at the germaphobe, see her fret, point and stare while she loses herself to obsession. Such peculiar behaviour. But is it extreme, or wise to worry about surfaces that aren’t bastions of sanitation?
Germaphobes have a pathological fear of germs, and are obsessed with hygiene. They go to extremes when it comes to avoiding germs. We touch germ-harbouring stuff all day without realising it; light switches, doorknobs, phone receivers, the remote control, taps - the list is endless. And now, here are six more spore infested fortresses to add to the paranoia, some of which may never have crossed your mind, most of which survive quite easily in the petri dishes of our lives.
1. Restaurant menus
Have you ever seen anyone wash off a menu? Cold and flu viruses survive for 18 hours on hard surfaces. Hundreds of people handle restaurant menus – and in doing so, very generously pass their germs on to you. Never let a menu touch your plate or silverware. Don’t boo or hiss – the germaphobe washes her hands after placing her order.
2. Lemon wedges
Nearly 70% of the lemon wedges perched on the rims of restaurant glasses contain disease-causing microbes. Tell your waiter that you prefer to take your beverages sans fruit.
3. Condiment dispensers
Restaurants regularly bleach their condiment dispensers - JOKES. The guy who squeezed the ketchup before you may have very charitably propagated his germs over your fries.
4. Restroom door handles
Don't think you can escape the restroom without touching the door handle? Palm a spare paper towel after you wash up and use it to grasp the handle. Yes, other patrons may think you're deranged, but you'll never see them again - and cheers to your better health!
5. Soap dispensers
Restroom dispensers are contaminated with faecal bacteria. Soap that harbours bacteria - how ironic is that? Most of these containers are never cleaned, so bacteria grow as the soap scum builds up, and the bottoms are touched by dirty hands, so there's a continuous culture feeding millions of bacteria – eeekk! It’ll be alcohol based sanitisers for me! Well ... who will turn off my tap?
6. Grocery carts
The handles of shopping carts are contaminated with bacteria. In fact, bacterial counts of carts exceed those of the average public dunny.  And while you're wheeling around the supermarket, skip the free food samples, which are nothing more than communal hand-to-germ-to-mouth zones.  What now - online shopping?
OMG – with this arsenal of germs about, I may never leave the house again!
PS. We really do love puppies too ;)

A Valentine's Obsession to Warm Every Heart

It starts with a card, sweet coffee, croissant in bed, then we speak of the memories from the time we first met. Later, it’s dinner, at our favourite haunt, sunset on the bay, twinkling eyes discretely flaunt. Then it’s oysters and lobster, but leave room past the main, can’t fill up on seafood without a dance in the rain.  Home, in the kitchen, it’s time for desert, music in the background, our hearts on alert.
It’s time for Lindtinis, a cocktail for two, made from exquisite Lindt Chocolate, but only a few ...
Lindor Balls Raspberry or Extra Dark flavour
85ml Raspberry Vodka
60ml White Crème de Cacao
Fresh Raspberries  
1. Chill the vodka, Crème de Cacao and 2 martini glasses
2. Put vodka and Crème de Cacao into a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake and pour mixture into the chilled martini glasses.
3. Add Lindor Ball and a fresh raspberry.
Valentine's Day, only two weeks away. Follow this recipe and let the fireworks begin!

My Procedure on How to be a Bloggerholic!

Hi Bloggerholics!
As you can see Moana and I are the biggest bloggerholics! By comparison, chocolate is too irresistible, just as irresistible as my keyboard. Drool comes from my mouth, and I look just like Homer Simpson - Mmmm.... keyboard (BTW, I am not fat and bald and I don't drool either.) As a bloggerholic you must listen to the instructions.

Step 1
Keep on writing posts constantly and never stop!
Step 2
Go to other blogs and follow as many as you can.
Step 3
Don't leave your computer until you go to bed - ok, maybe that's too far!
Step 4
Take your computer to bed
Step 5
Make your blog spot your best friend!
