Hello Everyone,

I am new to this board but not new to the works of SK.

For years, I have found little character quirks in SK's stories that stay with me long after I've closed the book. For example, for months after finishing The Talisman, I would finish my sentences by screaming, "Wolf!" (Yes, everyone thought I was quite the loon.) Of course, for those of you in the know, that is what Jack Sawyer's friend Wolf always said.

One day, I was baking cookies and got distracted by a phone call. When the burning smell grabbed by attention, I dropped the phone and came running only to find my cookies more closely resembled meteorites. I stood there shaking my and and said, "Done bun can't be undone." -- thank you so very much Ralph Roberts (Insomnia) for that accurate assessment, now get out of my head!

So, I am interested in knowing if anyone else is haunted by SK's characters. What quirks do you remember? What do they say to you?

The other day, I worked up quite the appetite and said out loud, "I'm so hongry!" I knew that way of saying hungry came from the Dark Tower, but I can't remember where. So, I need some help here. I am trying to remember the character that had that unusual way of saying hungry. I think it may be from the Wolves of the Calla but it might be Song of Suzanna too. Anyway, Roland came upon a house or a shack in a very wilderness-like place. He's was drawn there and inside there's a voice that says it's "hongry." Book/Chapter anyone?

"I am trying to remember the character that had that unusual way of saying hungry."
This has been driving me nuts! I've been searching for days to figure out what SK character said "hongry". And like a dog that won't let go of a bone, heh, heh, heh...I got it! ;-) It was Mordred Deschain, Roland's evil werespider son. He spanned several books and when he was hungry, he said "Mordrid's a-hongry." Which reminds me, it's time to log off and go fix dinner.
