  1. To work together, especially in a joint intellectual effort.
  2. To cooperate treasonably, as with an enemy occupation force in one’s country.
  3. Two or more persons working in unison to achieve the same goal.

I am uncertain which of these definitions best suits OC’s and my efforts in creating our joint post:

  • There was a little cooperation (little being the operative word).
  • There was definately some collaborating with the enemy, though OC and I both seem to be unclear on just who the enemy was.
  • There also seemed to be more then two voices involved in the project, though OC swears it was my imagination.
  • And, I was trying very hard to keep it intellectual, but … well, see for yourself. Check out:

He Said, She Said, an O’Ceallaigh & The Quill collaborative production.

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. I’m with you, Quilly. If any plant in the world should have been named Bullwhip Kelp (or Larry for that matter), it’s that one. I can very easily pick out the bullwhip, but I’m having a little trouble figuring out the bull. Oh, wait. That’s where the Dudes come in, isn’t it?? 😉 😀

  2. Brig — I really do think I could do a much better job naming the seaweed then the scientists did. And who are these dudes everybody is yammering about?!

    Polona — there were only two of us on the dock. You may need some remedial math. But I’m glad you liked the post!

    Dr. John — were you hearing voices, too? It was very confusing ….

  3. I came back here where things are a little less schizophrenic. Plus, here I won’t have dreams about green choking monsters of the deep.

  4. To cooperate TREASONABLY? Don’t they lock us up for treason??? Is that for real? Are you pullin’ my leg? I gotta go google now….

  5. I liked the joint post… but shouldn’t there have been a post that mentioned leaving the continent and arriving in your new tropical home? Did I miss it?
