Maybe someone should run a 1/2hour group hug panel... Maybe have someone research GLOMP and Free Hugs and do a whole panel on it for the last 1/2 hour... And explain why it's been out grown?
Haha! I actually love the history of the whole 'Free Hugs' concept (the actual campaign and whatnot), so if your serious I could help to that effect. It's actually a very nice, wonderful concept about togetherness and connection... It's just irritating, an mass.
I like it, and I still find it annoying when I'm just trying to get from point A to point B and I get signs all up in my grill. And some people wouldn't take 'no' for an answer, which was really bad. If I don't want a hug, I shouldn't have to have one. This was only two people, but each time it REALLY bothered me.
As for the actual con, it was very fun! I loved a lot of the 18+ events (it was my first year being over 18 and I can't believe how fun these are), and some of the others. My only feedback is a lot of stuff got canceled. I mean A LOT. Do we know why? I think of 60% of the panels I planned on attending didn't happen once I got there. That was sort of depressing, especially some that I looked forward to all weekend. >m<
