''Beastly'' is often used by AR; Nancy says "We’ll always have to be back for some beastly meal" (while the GA is staying) (SD3)
Susan says "it would be rather beastly to leave them (the D’s) out of things" (WH4)
John says (as) "all of us being so beastly young" (to be in charge of the Goblin) (WD19)
Another expression is "open-mouthed" eg: "Dick and Dorothea watched, open-mouthed" (as John sets up the signal system (WH5)
