1. The holidays are upon us and after discussion among the moderators, it has been unanimously decided that we will be closing the Board on the following dates to give us the chance to enjoy the holidays with our families and so that the volunteer moderators will not have to cover for me while I am on vacation. The Board will be open to read and those who have those privileges can still send private messages and post to Profiles.

    Here's a clue. It's a two word phrase.

    danie I am whatever you say I am.

    He uses "that was" a great deal; as in, "If she'd been thinking straight, that was."

    skimom2 Just moseyin' through...

    My first impulse was, "Can you dig it?" :) Can't think of many of Mr King's books where that phrase isn't used at least once. As deft as he is with language, that is one verbal (or in this case, written), era-specific tic that has stuck with him.

    Two words, though... got me (for now. Though my mind will worry at it like a rat terrier--lol).

    I remember that an old member from the old board had a big problem with that too.

    He's ol skool like that . . .I think that's why I enjoy his writing so much.

    Walter Oobleck keeps coming back...or going, and going, and going

    ...empty devils...but I don't recall the phrase in the others...only Lisey's Story and Doctor Sleep....lean close...Twilight rocks...that's enough...get this...bite me...outta the pool...oo-ops, three words, hey?

    I still think Spidey may have got it with "Boo-yah!" (can't wait for Christine to log in...)

    And my next quiz question is:

    What is Mr. King's favorite obscure adjective?
