Seeing her appreciation and enthusiasm for Compliments on the streets of Austin, Texas was great. I continue to enjoy all the great people I have been meeting as a direct result of giving compliments, Seeing new smiles each day continue to fuel the momentum and passion for seeing more happy people. The smiles also fuel more and more compliments. I LOVE giving Compliments!

Compliments at a Baseball Game.

Compliments and Stand up comedy at a Brazos Valley Baseball game. We had a grand slam variety of comics for the line up. One young brave girl volunteered to tell a joke from  the infield. Her confident poised delivery won the crowd.

 

The event at the BV Bombers game was high energy and total fun for us all. We were treated 1st class by the management. All our needs and more were met with genuine care. A great family event.

Compliments again on South Congress and the encounter with the super human hug group led by Jenna Jasso.  I took a pause break to receive genuine super hugs from the group pictured above. A super human hug is not rushed and connects the hearts of both huggers.

I was also used for a prop by Ron (on the left in pic above)as he displayed his extensive variety of hugs. I learned some new hug styles and realize I may need a portable shower nearby if Ron comes by again to shower off his extensive hug sweat. Thank you for the hugs and adding your great smiles to the Million Smile Project.

It’s Texas HOT! I’m becoming Texas Toast. I like toast and I love Texas!

My dedication to complimenting the people and things of Austin is turning me into Texas Toast this month of July. I expect August will even turn me into a darker toast. I’m ok with it because; ” I like toast and I love Texas”. My microphone arm as pictured has a nice farmers tan. I like organic farmers so I love my farmers tan.

The Texas hot weather will not slow down a continuation of continued compliments on the streets of Austin. Everyone is unique and has great features to compliment. I’m complimenting agility, group walking in triangles, noses and hair buns just for starters. Sometimes I will compliment the same thing on others because I love the uniqueness and individuality of  example : peoples ear lobes or noses etc.

I’m noticing in upwards of 80% of people will engage and smile and laugh with me as I give compliments. A few people even strike the pose Madonna style waiting for a bliss of compliments, It is very fun and very rewarding seeing happy people everywhere I go.  Each and every smile warms my heart.  Super great to see so much heart in Austin, Texas.

 

 

Keep Austin Weird Festival

Compliments -Greeting Guests
Compliments -Greeting Guests

The Compliment Guy was the official greeter at the 2015 http://keepaustinweirdfest.com/ festival. 8 plus hours of continuous compliments to all the fun cool people. I stood at the top of the steps at the Long Center as  virtually everyone that entered received at least 1 genuine compliment.

All the smiles and all the fun and great music equals another great day.  A  brave 7 year old girl walked up to me with her dad off to the side several steps away and asks if she could give me compliments. I crouched down so I could look at her eye to eye.  She said some wonderful brilliant compliments. I then gave her some compliments. Next, she opened her arms as wide as possible towards her back and asked: ” may I hug you”? She gave me a hug with a smile that warmed my heart.

Each and every day I give compliments something extraordinary happens on top of an already great day. The extra great moment at the Keep Austin Weird Fest was an extraordinary 7 year old girl that clearly will achieve great things.

The Festival organizers said “The staff and people loved you, hope you will be back next year.” Yes of course, I will be back. I always go where I’m welcomed.
