The Halloween Meme

Today we ripped this meme off a blogger named Apryl from the blog Meridian Ariel. Apryl explains that the questions were compiled by her from a few different memes floating about. So she stole it from lots of people. But, it was probably stolen there as well. So, of course, that will be as far as we go. Tracing back our theft's thieves might take some time. Link back to us at Sunday Stealing!

~ The Hound of the Baskerville

The Exorcist was scary. My parents didn't let me go see it, so it was until I was almost 30 that I actually saw the whole thing. Creepy!!
