I heard Glenda the good witch. I totally forgot about the Cape Fear version but once you mentioned it, I heard it.


I just thought of playing hide and seek.


Glenda, but an edgy, bitter Glenda who's seen a bit too much snow as of late...

Hi Karen,

I'm one of the elder bloggers who enjoys your blog because I think you have a great family. My grandchildren are grown (18 and 21), and it's fun to read about little ones. Thanks for a good read.


I heard more of a Jack Nicholson in The Shining.


Susan: Nope, it was De Niro: http://www.tubechop.com/watch/6363 (I chopped it from the VERY violent complete scene at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Imuck-IAjM0.)


I am here! Also, I would like to start the book group again. xoxo

Hey Karen,
I too heard the hide-and-seek version, and added olly-olly-oxen-free. Overboard on the hyphens, eh? Sorry. I hope I'm not stressing you out.


I don't lurk--but here I am.


Actually, I lurk on others, but I do comment on your blog periodically. Maybe because you have interesting things to say. :)


I think my voice was Skipper from Gilligan's Island. I had an unhealthy fascination with that show as a kid.

As far as lurking goes, you knew I was here already. The big problem has always been getting me to shut up. :)

We enjoy your terrific insights and hope to continue linking to you on boston.com/newton.
Best to you and yours in 2009.


You know that I am the ultimate non-de-lurker...and fellow comment whore. I rarely read a post that I don't want to comment on. If I don't, it's usually because a fire started on the stove while I was reading.

I will be following the results of your experiment and probably copying it if it nets you lots of comments.


I lurk therefore I am.


Hi, Karen. I've been meaning to delurk for, oh, the better part of a month now. (I'm finally getting around to clearing out some bookmarks!)

I found your blog when I was searching for the proposed title of a blog of my own . . . which never materialized. I, too, live in the Greater Boston area and work with words.

I really enjoy your posts!
