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. ;)

Fuzzball, "Alex, I'll take Science for four hundred dollars."


Alex Trabeck, "It's the Daily Double!"

Fuzzball, "I'll bet all thirty seven thousand six hundred Alex."

[Crowd gasps. Up until now, Fuzzball had been decimating the competition and was coasting to yet another easy victory. Alex had been giving her very warm looks too... The question session after the first break was almost unbearable with Alex all fawning and tongue-tied like a little schoolboy and Fuzzball explaining how she couldn't bear to be without Clive what's-his-name, requiring them to take up temporary residence in the penthouse of the Burbank Ambassador Hotel during her incredible string of Jeopardy! wins.]

Alex, "Okay Fuzzy--do you mind if I call you Fuzzy?"

Fuzzball, "Yes."

Alex, "Okay...uh...sorry--I just thou--"

Fuzzball, "Get on with the damn question Alex!"

Alex, "It is the newest planet discovered in our solar system."

[Hear the music in your head.]

Good luck! BTW, checking the internet really, really, really is cheating...and I'll find out.


Jemison, your post had tears running down my face from the laughter!

Let's see, Alex. I'm not sure what the IAU has decided to formally call the newest planet in our system, but I do know that the scientists that made the original discovery have been calling it "Xena". I get tickled by that since a friend of mine calls me "warrior princess"...


I'm so sorry Fuzzball. You didn't frame your answer in the form of a question. You're absolutely right on the Xena part though...Mmmmmmmm...Lucy Lawless....in leather....with other firm-bodied women...in leather...oh, I'm sorry, just thinking out loud.
