No, not in “that” way, you perverts. It’s just an “arms-over-shoulder” thing. I’ll put up the pictures once I get them from my friend.
I must say, he is a pretty cool guy, actually coming to the venue hall at like, 12:30am, and gladly letting the committees (and hanger-ons like me) take photos with him and giving us words of encouragement while the whole venue was being setup (hastily) for the big day.
In any case, Day 1 is starting up soon, and I must get ready for a long and gruelling weekend to come… orz.
