    Sounds like fun.

    I remember my formal and I had a lot of fun. I won the "Forest Gump Award". I was very nervous in the lead up to the award, even though I was virtually a certainty to win it.

    I really can't remember the full details since it was about 20 months ago.

    I guess at the time I was the school long distance runner, and if you have seen 'Forest Gump' I guess it was based along those lines.

    Just back from Franz Ferdinand. Incredible! But my legs and throat are sore now. The moshpit was amazing, particularly for 'The Dark of the Matinee' and 'This Fire'.

    Their support band Goodshirt were brilliant also, I've now seen them live 3 times and I've been amazed by them each time. Definitely NZ's best rock band at the moment.

    It also might explain why he thought it was for long distance running
