What is a Fuzzball?

  • One question I hear more than any other is What's a Fuzzball??" Allow me to explain:

    A Fuzzball is a 30-year-old fallen debutante who lives in Houston, TX with a bossy dog and an even bossier parrot who she SWEARS is the reincarnation of Napoleon Bonaparte.

    A Fuzzball prefers animals to most people, because people can really suck sometimes.

    A Fuzzball loves music, ALL music ALL of the time. If she's not listening to it, then she's singing it.

    A Fuzzball has a mad love for all things British, especially their actors.

    A Fuzzball is blissfully happy in a bookstore, preferably one with good music playing in the background. If you look under a Fuzzball's bed you'll usually find an entire library of books that she has dropped there after falling asleep reading.

    Fuzzballs are usually incurable romantics, ridiculously optimistic, and bent on making the world a happier place.

    Your typical Fuzzball will probably have a completely bizarre sense of humor. Just go with it, it will take you to funny places.

    You should also be aware that Fuzzballs are giant nerds. Seriously. Science fiction, computers, the whole shebang.

    Fuzzballs are also budding photographers. They love looking at the world through a lens and finding new ways to be creative.

    Oh...and you can also look for a Fuzzball in one of the best movies ever made. ;)

It deeply pains me to say that I know this one. It is from Say Anything.


Don't ever diss anything Cusack, man. Plus the fact that it's a wicked romantic movie with a terrific soundtrack and did I mention John Cusack?


"I'm the distraction that's going with her to England, sir."

I was always more of a Better Off Dead guy myself.


We needn't quibble over Cusack films. I love them all. Better Off Dead has some of the greatest lines in any movie ever. Let's see...

"Gee, I'm real sorry your mom blew up, Ricky."

"My little brother got his arm stuck in the microwave. So my mom had to take him to the hospital. My grandma dropped acid this morning, and she freaked out. She hijacked a busload of penguins. So it's sort of a family crisis. Bye!"

"And dying when you're not really sick is really sick, you know. Really!"

"Now that's a real shame when folks be throwin' away a perfectly good white boy like that. "

"Go that way, really fast. If something gets in your way, turn."

"She only speaks French, Roy. She doesn't speak imbecile."

"I think I just froze the left half of my brain!"

And of course, the best of them all..."I WANT MY TWO DOLLARS!!!"


The fat guy in Better Off Dead is the best. Also the guy with the dead baby in a jar. Awesome.


Ricky is a personal favorite:

"We must obey the posted speed limit. A car is not a toy."

"You would be wise to do as mother says."

And then there's what might be my favorite exchange, between Lane and Monique:

"He thinks because I am under his roof that he can put his testicles all over me."
"I'm sorry, his what?"
"How you say? Octopus? Testicles?"
"Tentacles. N-T. Tentacles. Big difference."

And that fact that the asshole ski team captain's last name is "Stalin" amuses me way more than it probably should.


"Oh, Meyer...you're digging your own grave."


"You were standing with Oscar earlier. Is he your main...weiner man?"


"Suicide is never the answer, little trooper!"


"Hey Chris. You know...you skate. I skate. We skate. I was wondering if you'd like to get together and...be a skating team."
"Drop dead."


"Listen Lane, don't forget: Chris Cummins dates the basketball team. Not certain members of the team, Lane, the whole team."


"God Lane, will you relax? It's just our virginity."


"How are we going to get real drugs in this town? We can't even get cable!"


"I've been going to this high school for seven and a half years. I'm no dummy."


"It's got raisins in it...You like raisins..."


"Whats a little boy like you doing with big boy smut like this?"


"You make a gnarly run like that and girls will get sterile just looking at you."


"I could be home right now drinking this monster egg nog my brother makes with lighter fluid."


"Fronch dressing...Fronch fries...Fronch bread...and to drink...Peru!"


"That's a damn shame when folks be throwing away a perfectly good white boy like that."


HA HA HA! I already used that quote!

And now...for the win...

"Hey Meyer, be sure to shave her before you kiss her goodnight!"


Damn it. Serves me right for getting sloppy.


You're a worthy opponent, my friend. I'll take you on anytime!
