When was the last time someone came to the lounge for a hug?

Ya know, this sorta scenario: Raine pushed the doors open and said 'I need a hug. Can I get a hug? ' (and then Raine hugged a person in the lounge.)

I think a hug thread would be awesome.

so here:

I'm not expecting much from them this year, but it does look like they're not going to stink quite as bad as they did last year.

I return your hugs with appreciation.

When I was working (and I am a large and imposing male, often placed in supervisory positions) I would tell new employees that due to the sexual harassment policy I could never offer or force a hug on anyone, but if offered to me I was always available for one.

(imposing female here, supervisory as well in the past, I said much of the same)
