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. ;)

suburban misfit



You don't know me but I just wanna say thank for a post that you made a gazillion of years a go. I've been searching for the lyrics for "The Land Of Might Have Been" forever and you had them on yout blog. yay! Thank you.


There's plenty of time to place blame in this crisis but it's not now. We have thousands upon thousands of Americans who are displaced and lost with nothing left of their lives. If you help only one soul, you have given a priceless gift. Can any of us even imagine what the days were like for the victims of Katrina -- no! We watched it on tv in our comfortable homes. The stories coming out of this are almost too much to comprehend and we will never hear about all of them.

We have taken in children at the school where I teach and they seem okay; their parents look haunted. And these are people who have their kids in private school in La. Just think about the babies who are waiting for their mothers to find them in hospitals. Just think about families wrenched apart with no ideas of how to reach each other. Just think of the men and women who were in the direst poverty in La. and the small glimmer of hope that they had is now gone. The will to survive is so great that so many lives were spared and for that we can all be very grateful. But the devastation is so profound that thousands of lives have changed forever.

We as a nation must step up and take care of our own. It's not going to be easy; we are going to see chaos on a grand scale. But you would want us to help you -- you would expect us to help you. And that is just what we will do. Give a dollar, give an hour, give toiletries, give clothes. Do something! You will never regret it!


Amen and amen! Tens of thousands of evacuees is a number way too low. The number I just saw on TV was a million. Given that New Orleans alone had a population of 1.2 million even that seems a conservative estimate. We, as a nation, have never faced something like this. We, as human beings, as individuals, must do whatever we can. These people's lives have been changed forever. This will be a defining moment for them, both the adults and maybe especially the children. This, too, is a defining moment for us in the greater Houston area. Everyone is capable of doing something. To ignore this disaster relief effort, or to watch it on TV like it is entertainment is unconscionable.


It's not often you see someone who will stand up for what they believe in..without worrying about others reactions. I admire you and am thankful to have you as a friend...
