Ali Edwards Capture life. Create art.

March 31, 2007

one + one + one…

one + one + one

That is how this is happening.

It is 7:54pm here on the west coast. The contest ends at 8:59pm west coast time.

The final hour of craziness.

Let's do this.

(Have you called your brother, your sister, your mom, your dad, your long lost cousin yet?)
