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. ;)

Great idea! My wife and I should fill the plastic tub we're already using as a couch with ice! ;)


So I've been doing my research on these lately, as the East Bay has been unusually and insufferably hot lately and our house has no A/C. (It was 102 yesterday! 102 with no AC!)

That unit looks a little large (BTU-wise) for either the upstairs or downstairs, and it cannot cool both at the same time! Its important to get an appropriate sized unit for your space. A bigger unit is not always better and will not always cool a smaller room adequately. Its important to know the size of your space, and buy appropriately. (It also saves energy, but talking to a Texan about saving energy is like asking a fish to not use so much water)


Tim, you're such a know-it-all. Just buy me the damn a/c unit and shyaddup.

Seriously, though, you're right about the larger unit and all of that. My problem is that my downstairs doesn't have a window that can be opened, only a sliding glass door. SO it looks like if I get a window unit it will go in the window above the stairs. That way it can cool up and down. It doesn't need to bring the temp down from 100 or anything, I mean, I do have a unit that's already running. It would just be used for those extra-awful nights when I come home and open the door to the pizza oven that I call home.


The only way I can sympathize with you on this is recalling when the times when the air conditioning went out. I'm only warm if there's no air in the summer, but I tend to be cool/cold or at least very sensitive to cold air blowing on me most of the time, so we keep the house 77-80. I like hot and humid. :-) My husband calls me his hot house flower. ;-)

Maybe you should get some tropical plants. That way at least something in the house will be at the right temperature. ;-)


We need a new air conditioner, too, but how come they're so much more expensive here? That one is big enough to cool an entire apartment (at least a Japanese-sized apartment) but something for the same price here would cool one smallish room. (We only cool one room anyway, though - it's too expensive to cool the whole place.)
