Leighton Howl's wedding. The photos that won't appear in the album.

<smaller>It's only at a mate's wedding - or funeral - that you hear
stories about them which give you insights into their character. It
was the former event for Pond Art Director Leighton Howl, who married
Christy Warn on Saturday.

Aside from Christy having to swap one dubious four-letter surname for
another, we uncovered some interesting info about Leighton that we
felt it was only right to share with the wider advertising community:

- A former Waikato prop with long hair scrubs up falrly well in a suit
on the wedding day.

- A former Waikato prop in a pink women's dress scrubs up even better
on the stag night.

- Leighton's nickname is Yeti Dog and the facial likeness is alarming.

-The stray cat that scratched Leighton's new car a few months ago was
relocated by someone looking suspiciously like a Yeti, who took it for
a ride over the Harbour Bridge and forgot to bring it back.

- When you want to impress a girl, go out and buy a new double bed.
However DON'T take your mate along to help you buy the bed.

- If you do take a mate along, try not to use words like, “We're
looking for a bed and “Here sit on it Ollie. Is it firm enough?” Also,
when the sales lady asks what you do, and you're currently studying
interior design, don't blurt this information out and embarrass your
best mate. Because one day they'll be your best man looking to dish
some dirt on you.

<smaller>Suffice to say the wedding was a a great day and, having
assured Leighton that it would be a very bad idea to take his computer
away on holiday, we are now safely posting these photos at the home
page of www.thepond.co.nz in the full knowledge that when Mr and Mrs
Howl come back from honeymoon, the blog will have been archived and
the photos removed from the site. (V.adviseable when dealing with
former Waikato prop who looks like a Yeti)

Bounce.

Kind of ironic there are no photos of the Yeti.

I remember Leighton as the guy who hit on any girl at the agency. And kept trying once he was told to bugga off.

This is all very interesting. Personally, I prefer updates about Connan's arse. Come on mate, tell us how it's going after all these months.

"I remember Leighton...." This is a comment that should be removed. What sort of fuckwit writes this about anybody when they have just gotten married. There's no fuckin need.
