Quilly is the pseudonym of Charlene L. Amsden, who lives on The Big Island in Hawaii. When she is not hanging out with Amoeba, she is likely teaching or sewing. Or she could be cooking, taking photographs, or even writing. But if she's not doing any of that, she's probably on Facebook or tinkering with her blog.


  1. Quilly-Sister,
    1,7,8,9,13,14,15,17,19,20,22,23,24,25,26,27,28,30,31,32,33,34,36,38,41,42,44,45,47,49,52,55,56,57,59,60,62,63,64,65,68,72,75,77,83,85,88,90,92,96,102,110,116,117,118,119,129,130,133,135,137,146 whew!

  2. Quilly, I stole this and posted it to my blog…hehehehe. 1,6-9,13,15,17,19-24,26,27,29-34,36-38,41,42,45,47-49,52,55-60,62-65,68,71-78,84,86-88,95,96,100,102,104,106-108,110,111,113,115-119,125,127-130,132-138,141,144,146,148-150! Whew, now I am tired!

  3. Jackie — I remember #31 after Kenny’s funneral. You felt better but the rest of us had our hair standing on end. You know, my friend Linda and I tried it after Joanne died and it really did help. We drove out into the middle of the wheat field so there was no one around and just screamed — and then we cried.

    Jan — you’re welcome to it! That’s how I got it! I’ll be over to read it in just a bit.

    Nessa — so, how would your list look? No less surprising, I bet.

  4. Ayup: 6,8,11,12-14,17,19-20,22-25,27,29-33,38-39,41-42,44,47,49,53-54,56-60,62-65,69,72,77,82,84,86-90,92,96,113,116-118,120,127-8,132,135,141,147

    Stories and comments:

    15. Once attended an Ohio State-Minnesota college football game. When Minnesota first crossed the 50-yard line, second quarter, OSU up 33-zip, the faculty wife in the seat next to mine started yelling “Spear him (their quarterback)! Spear him!” I left at halftime. Have never been in a major sports stadium since. This was 1981.

    37. I lived in New Zealand. Came home and people I knew well said “You talk funny”.

    75. Pending.

    89. Mind you, it was just a midnight stopover on a round-the-world flight …

    120. It was a hog-nosed snake, a native of Eastern North America that tries its hardest to look like a dangerous viper. Freaked my poor father (petrified of snakes) right out …

    132. Dissected. Professional duties. Perhaps also professional courtesy. ๐Ÿ™‚

    147. But they call what I was “an announcer” now. DJs do parties, not name the tunes on pothead radio. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m more boring than you, nyah nyah. ๐Ÿ˜›

  5. OC — boring is not a word I would use to decribe you. I’ve read about your road trips.

    I am very sorry to hwear about #75. I’ve been there and it isn’t a comfortable place.

    As to #132, I live in the desert southwest, in their territory, and I can’t seem to convince them to move.

  6. Kat — I’ve eaten friend grasshopper, chocolate covered ants, squid, octopus, frog, alligator … I haven’t eaten the cockroaches — shudder but I’ve murdered a good many of them. (Not enough, though. Not nearly enough.)

  7. When love goes wrong what is left but madness? And I am not certain alcohol is any better excuse than another — or anymore painful. Broken promises, broken expectations, broken trust — it wounds no matter what guise it wears.

    I wasn’t the only injured party. I failed my husband by overcoming my shyness and developing a self-confidence he found very daunting. He said I didn’t need him enough. I couldn’t make him understand that want should have more value than need.

  8. Interesting. You “failed” in precisely the way that would, I think, have saved our marriage if my partner had adopted it. Dude must have been really insecure – a failing with which I am all too intimately familiar, and never mind anyone else.

    Such experiences build walls. I hope you have allowed yourself a loophole or two through which you may peek from time to time.

  9. Two years ago I actually stepped out from behind my walls and trusted — and I’ll sum that experience up by saying, I don’t seem to choose men very well.
