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. ;)

I think you made some really great observations on the blogosphere. There really is nothing worse than writing the "perfect post" and not really getting any response to it. I'll admit that there have been times when I've blogged more based on what I thought would appeal to my readers than what I actually wanted to write.

My blog is too much like me to ever be mega-popular. But, I think I like it better that way. :)

I hear ya, loud and clear. I know my blog is boring and will never be super popular, but honestly? I'm ok with that. I see so much hatred (jealousy?) being thrown around in the blogosphere that some times I think it's better to stay under the radar.

But I do agree that some times you wonder "Was it something I said?" (or wrote) that drove everyone away? I also worry that I might have offended one of my (very few) readers when I write something and it's all I can do to NOT type up an email and say "I'm so sorry, I didn't mean it".

Goober? Yah that's me...unpopular and goober-y but nice when you get to know me ;-)

As far as I'm concerned there is NO ONE cooler than you.

I have to admit the following: I only skimmed your latest blog entry as I am too kewl for reading (and, evidently, spelling).

Just wanted to point out: www.myspace.com/iluvcaseydouglas

also, a friend of mine has this page: www.myspace.com/thelittlestvampire

I have been told to tell you to listen to the song "my humpies" on the littlest vampire's page. GO FIGZ.

*I* want to hang out with you. :-)

And yeah, I've written interesting insightful posts that have gotten no response (and worse yet have written nothing-little-posts that have gotten HUGE response). One of the things that bothers me about blogs is that they are fundamentally egocentric and don't have the same potential for community building that forums do. (My forum, The Gym, is dead right now.) Which I've written about in a widely ignored post in my blog, Amp'd Up. So, to counter the whole everybody's blog is the center of their universe thing I've started a group blog for my friends. We aren't cool by blogosphere standards, but we're a diverse and interesting group...and by blogging together at the very least we will read each other's posts. ;-)

It's tough not to let your ego get hurt when your blog is ignored---especially if you put a certain amount of your *self* into the blog. Lack of attention could be construed as "my friends don't give a damn about me". Which *probably* isn't true. The happiness and self-esteem of the blogger should be based on what they have written---not the response (or lack thereof) to it.

In my book, you ARE one of the cool kids, La Fuzz! :-D

Chris

I am as cool as my blog purports to be. No frontin.

Your blog reveals your mind, which is very cool.

southernfriedgirl

Hey, I'd hang out with you in a friggin heartbeat, girl. I do know what you mean though. I know for a fact I was not cool andn am not cool now. It takes a lot of time but finally I am ok with that. However, you are cool as shit in my book. :)
