BBB’s Horror Lover Challenge – Part One

Published August 30, 2013 by Shadow Girl

I was hopping around the blogosphere this morning, trying to reconnect with everyone and get up to date with the latest news, reviews, and fun. I was on my new BLOGGER account, (http://shadowgrrl.blogspot.com/) even though I haven’t posted anything there yet. I’m not sure what I’m going to do with that one, but… it will be cool & awesome, so be sure to check it out some time!!
I stumbled upon a great bit on FreddyInSpace‘s blog, (http://www.freddyinspace.com/) that is what I’m sharing here, except -you know- with MY answers! If you haven’t been to FreddyInSpace, that is someone you should follow! FreddyInSpace is the brilliant mind behind some of your favorite internet memes – but never gets credited! All the Ben & Jerry Horror flavors were created by F.I.S. I’ve shared a few of them here – that’s how I learned about http://www.freddyinspace.com/ – through a comment left on one of my shares! I’m 99% sure that the Horror Happy Meals originated there, too.
Here is the Horror Lover Challenge.
