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. ;)

Yup, I'm the spaz/spaz. The only thing I don't share on my blog are personal matters that involve others. If it's just ME that pees his/her pants, THEN I'll share that. If however the Hubs pees his pants, then I keep that to myself. I also try not to "talk about" people IRL in a negative way if possible.

Other than that, the dork that you see via my blog is the dork you'd see in real life :-)


"I'm a shut-in and my blog reflects my total inability to interact with anything human."

I wouldn't describe it as being "total" or an "inability," but that's the closest one of the four choices I could honestly select.


Not necessarily, Chris from far away. Case in point: my last relationship. Brilliant and witty on his blog, shy to the point of not speaking in person.


I'm tight-lipped on my personal blog, but we have this [adjectives deleted] ethics policy at work that kinds of causes that. Bleh.


I'd say my blog pretty closely reflects who I am in real life -- geeky, jokey, and always willing to use ten words when three would suffice.

So, I'll go spaz/spaz. ;)

I just think it's better to remain on-topic on my blog. It's meant to be that type of thing and have a sole focus. When I do delve into personal topics it's very weird for me and kind of unnatural. I stay away from family matters entirely out of respect for my wife and kids. That being said, it's very much my personality that comes out in my posts.


Okay that's it. I have far too many readers named "Chris". I'm going to have to give you all nicknames. Let's see...Chris from Nacogdoches will be "Texas Chris", Chris from Germany will be "German Chris" and Chris Thilk will be "New Chris". There.

If there are any other Chris' out there, I'm sorry, but you're going to have to change your name. LIUF has officially reached its quota.


I'm kinda tightlipped on my blog because in another internet incarnation I was more in the spaz/spaz category and as a result of my candor people who read me tracked me down in real life. I was lucky they weren't crazy. So, places I like to go, things I like to do, and photos of me and my family are either not written about or put in password protected posts. Also, I write kind of dull. It doesn't pay to appear to be too interesting with all the whack-os in the world. I would love to be more of a cut-loose person, but that really didn't work for me....and it worked a bit too well for my readers...


Oh, the spazzes and the shut-ins are neck and neck!

I'm mostly a shut-in type who blathers on about television, although every once in a while I slip up and say something indicating I do have a personal life and am not actually a brain in a jar.


I'm not quite sure which category I fit into. I don't quite fit the other categories, but... a spaz? Moi?

I met someone last year I only knew from an email list I'm on, and he told me that I was exactly what he'd expected from my writing, even though he'd never seen any pictures or met me before. (I wasn't sure whether to be pleased or alarmed.) Perhaps that will tell you something...


I feel like I cycle between all of the above both in life and on my blog, but I picked "spaz" because that's probably the one constant through all the other choices.

Sometimes I really wish I had some sort of hobby or interest that lent itself to a thoughtful, consistent blog on the subject. Unfortunately, the only thing I really spend that much time on is smoking on my front porch while thinking catty things about my neighbors, and I guess I just don't have the discipline to devote an entire site to that.

"New Chris." Just like the old Chris except I taste more like Pepsi.


Oh New Chris, you're going to fit in just fine here. Juuuuust fine.
