I'm posting mostly over at Quirky Cookery right now, where I play with my food and teach you to have fun with it, too. Come check me out?

Purdue "compliment guys" spread random compliments

To a passing guy dressed in Purdue sweats they say, “Love your school spirit.”

To the woman carrying the trendy black bag: “Very nice purse.” “It’s very large.”

And for the student who ran past them in knee-high leather boots: “I like your hustle.” “I like your boots, too.”

Tired of people being so down in the dumps amid the worst economy in decades, sophomores Cameron Brown and Brett Westcott—better known as the “Compliment Guys”—have taken it upon themselves to cheer up the campus.

From 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. every Wednesday, they stand outside the chemistry building in the shadow of the university’s Bell Tower with their “Free Compliments” sign. They’re there in the rain. In the snow. And this week when the windchill made it feel like 10 degrees.
These boys are surely on summer vacation now, and who knows if they'll pick up their compliment fun later in the year, but I love their spirit. The rest of the article is really interesting, so I'd highly recommend you look it over (at least skim it). Many kudos to these boys.

How wonderful! They seem to lift everyone's spirits. I'm sure I could't keep that up for two hours at a time!
