So I was getting some food today at work, hitting the KGM food court.
After getting my Arby's, I'm heading back to the store. Three steps away, a fifteen-year-old guy comes up, says, "I've got to give you a hug," and embraces me.
With a very confused expression on my face, and a little scared, I hug him back with the arm that isn't holding the food.
Everything was (mostly) explained when he said, "I just had to do that when I realized that you're in Apocalypse Kow."
So, that's somewhat cool. I now declare this year "Hug a Kow Member" Year. However, I'm now only accepting hugs from cute women ages 18-30.
Canton will now be accepting the hugs from the teenaged male demographic.

So, I'm wondering if I might have passed up something in Banff.
On Saturday, after the day of singing, some of us were going to hit the bar across the way from the conference centre hotel. I arrived too early, found no one there, and left the pub on the way back to find friends at the hotel.
Outside, there was a cute girl smoking on the steps.
She said "Hi" to me in an interested tone.
I smiled at her, said "Hi" back, and kept walking. And kept walking further from an interested cute girl.
Granted, I rarely (never) make it a habit to hook up with people I just meet at a bar. (This might be a reason I'm still single.) It's just never appealed to me.
But, yeah, I was kicking myself as soon as I walked out of sight.

Just so you know, I have upgraded my blog to filter out the spam comments. So there's the tiring "type in a word so Jago knows you're not a robot" part of commenting now. Still, it's less of a hassle for ME this way.
