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. Folks — OC put his foot into my lap willinglly. He was wide awake when I did this. Of course, he thought I was applying first aid to his injured little toe — and I did, after. The man is an incredibly good sport and very patient — or very resigned to torture at my hands. Whichever, he took this well.

  2. Polona — OC most certainly is!

    Bill — LET me? Oh dear. Was I supposed to ask for permission?

    Mike — luckily OC did not agree. If I recall when he looked down at his foot to see what it I was doing, his exact response was, “Oh. Lovely!” Which lead me to believe he was quite content.

  3. Bazza — time …. what I ran out of was time.

    Doug — Jesus is risen, OC however is quite grounded. He just takes a deep breath, sighs, and shakes his head at me. I am still trying to decide how I feel about that.

    Mumma — I currently own two colors of nail polish, sheer pink and that lovely fuscia. I am certain the sheer pink wouldn’t have shown up.

    Minka — what’s your point? And Happy Easter to you.

    Kat — that is one of the things that attracted me to him in the first place. AND, if you love that shade of pink you would have loved my Easter outfit.

  4. ha! i had a feeling hot pink would be a good color on O’C. or a scary one…

    hope you two had a lovely, Happy and/or colorful Easter! xox

  5. Jenna — OC didn’t really consider the polish an improvement. Men are so odd.

    Neva — I think I’ll buy him a polo shirt that color. What do you think?

  6. They are strange creatures, Quilly. He should be thankful you just colored his toes. I mean…there’s eyeliner to consider and I bet blue eye shadow would look fantabulous on him. Would go well with the polo shirt.

  7. Jenna — I have sensitive eys and wear little makeup, do you have any eyeshadow I can borrow?

    OC — Jenna and I are playing nicely. Don’t interrupt. :*

  8. “Three pink toes on a man’s hairy foot.” Sounds like this should be some kind of secret agent code phrase or something. Alas, it isn’t, and you’ve posted the disturbing pic to prove it.
