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. ;)

Fetish porn? Stripping bare? What kind of blog is this turning into? ;)

Let's see...if you could trade places (a la Freaky Friday) with anyone for a day, who would you choose and why?


What can I say, Jess, I'm a woman on the edge. ;P

Trading places for a day...

Clive Owen's wife. She can walk Emma and feed Monty and I'll walk and feed her husband. Bow chicka BOW bow!

Was that a shallow answer? Yeah, yeah, I guess so. Ah well.

Why don't you respond to my comments?

Oh, and oh, another: What ARE you gonna do with all that junk?


Why is the sky blue?

casey mcbuggles

I can answer that last one. The atmosphere has an overwhelming amount of nitrogen, and it just so happens that the "size" or "diameter" (if you will) of nitrogen atoms is approximately equal to the wavelength of blue light. Thus, when the sunlight enters the atmosphere, hits these particles and disperses, the resulting light you see is blue.*

eh?? eh?????????

*note: this may be entirely wrong


Torrie: Okay, since it's ask your FUZZBALL, I'll also answer the sky question with the following info from howstuffworks.com:

The first thing to recognize is that the sun is an extremely bright source of light -- much brighter than the moon. The second thing to recognize is that the atoms of nitrogen and oxygen in the atmosphere have an effect on the sunlight that passes through them.

There is a physical phenomenon called Rayleigh scattering that causes light to scatter when it passes through particles that have a diameter one-tenth that of the wavelength (color) of the light. Sunlight is made up of all different colors of light, but because of the elements in the atmosphere the color blue is scattered much more efficiently than the other colors.

So when you look at the sky on a clear day, you can see the sun as a bright disk. The blueness you see everywhere else is all of the atoms in the atmosphere scattering blue light toward you. (Because red light, yellow light, green light and the other colors aren't scattered nearly as well, you see the sky as blue.)

So, Casey's answer was on the nose. But it's MY blog. So there. Heh.

Casey: Because you're a silly bean, and I've got the junk in my trunk, thank you very much.


Have you never been mellow? Have you never tried to find a comfort from inside you? Have you never been happy just to hear your song? Have you never let someone else be strong? Just wondering.

some more questions for fuzzball, not about fuzzball, that perhaps you might be able to field nonetheless:

Concerning the book Wicked:

1. Was Elphaba in fact fathered by the Wizard?
2. What the fuck is Yackal anyway?


Chris: Listen, mister, I just want you to slow down. Come on, I don't mean to make you frown!

Casey: Yes, I do believe that he is her father.

I think that Maguire leaves the interpretation of Yackle up to the reader. I believe that she is the spirit of Oz itself, or perhaps she is Lurline with a different name. Who knows?


1. Since you love all things British, does that include hot tea? If so, what's your favorite (or what kind do you have in the cabinet right now)?

2. J.K. Rowling has said that two major characters will die in the final book. Who do you think they will be?
