Hi, everyone! I am not sure how many of you will be up for this, but I just found out about a great contest on Twitter. YATopia is hosting a pitch contest.

Here's another attempt at the query. R.J. and Deirdre, thanks so much for your help! I think this is definitely a lot better than my first try, but I'm not sure it's there yet. More under the cut- Read more... )
