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. ;)

Yikes, that sucks. But if the severance and unemployment give you time to figure out new direction, then it can be good. :O


Girl, as a former paralegal in an insurance defense firm, I so feel your pain. It is just exhausting. God love ya.

I am glad you are totally looking at this as a good thing. This has freed you up to do what you want. Good for you.


hopefully it will open up opportunities you wouldn't have otherwise approached - ? good luck!


WOW! Well at least you're being optimistic about it. Glad to hear you're by no means letting this tiny little set back keep you down!

I truly enjoyed YOUR trip to NY. Can't wait for the rest of the pictures :-)


Seriously, they suck ass.

You are AWESOME.

If you need anything . . .


in the words of Mother Superior (from the Sound of Music): "When God closes a door, somewhere he opens a window...."
climb out that window and get going -- whether it is grad school (still not too late for next fall), relocating, changing careers, etc. don't worry, you're resilient, have the right attitude, and will land on your feet.

**Also, don't forget to snag some office supplies on the way out the door.


I hope you go back to school.


Oh, man that sucks! :-( Definitely look at this as an opportunity to get into something better. The transition may have some rough spots, but aim for something better, whether it be a better law firm or grad school. :-) And on a further positive note, being unemployed means for the next couple of weeks you won't have a job distracting you from what's really important---your cyberlife online. ;-)


Sorry to hear it. If it's any consolation, grad school was (almost) worth it. I say "almost" because I'm still paying off my student loans almost ten years after getting my Master's.


Sorry to hear about the lay-off. Maybe it's time to get the hell outa' Houston and spread your wings! You go, Girl!


I like that you're looking at this so positively. And it is good to know that it seriously isn't personal.

That said, paralegals are in demand EVERYWHERE. Throw a dart on the map and go. And if NYC is the place, by all means...HOP TO IT!!!

Big hugs.


Oh no! Sorry to hear about the layoff. That sucks. But seriously, if you move to New York, or come to visit again, let me know -- I'll hop a train! (Sorry for the belatedness -- I was way behind on my blogging *and* blog-reading.)
