the limp handshake

"Andrea, a pleasure to meet you," Gabriel said, extending a hand and taking mine in one of those annoyingly delicate I'm-not-shaking-your-hand-as-I-would-a-man's-because
-in-half-clutches. "Christian has told me a lot about you."

"Really?" I said, pressing a bit more firmly, which only caused him to loosen his already slack grip...

Have you ever been a victim of the limp handshake? I absolutely hate it! I was on the receiving end of one this afternoon in a meeting. Did this guy really think he was SOOO strong that he was in danger of crushing my hand? Do I look that fragile and breakable? I mean, seriously!

To all the men out there, PLEASE shake my hand as opposed to offering me a limp fish to shake! Women around the country will thank you. Especially this businesswoman!

the COOLEST plastic EVER!

I must say, I think I have the coolest credit card company EVER. Not only do I earn cash back on purchases, but I recently got to design my own card--like with a picture I took myself! for free! on the website. you can even just play around, regardless whether you have a card with them or not. AND, I can change my card image lots of times (I just have to wait 30 days between each time).

The designer in me is giddy!

Cool, huh?

Mom thinks that I look mostly like Dad--so I just hope my kids have cheeks like his!
