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 love this post! Isn't it sad how different kids are now than they were back in the day? I LOVED playing outside & making up stories. Now my kids are like "YOu didn't play PS2 every waking moment? What are you a dinosaur?!?!?" Gah!

Jess

We still do the "Santa" presents and "family" presents with my family, too. :)

Fuzzball

That's because we're twins, dude. ;D

Suzie

My family does the same thing! My Mom (even BEFORE the Nephew and Niece were around) would ALWAYS have presents from "Santa" for us (her GROWN children). Plus she'd make us wait until Christmas morning for our stockings (which were always from Santa).

I'm so glad our family isn't "weird" ;-)

Now Suz, let's not jump to any hasty conclusions here.

BWAH HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Chris

My little sister and I completely bought into it, as well. We left milk and cookies out for "Santa," and I'm still fairly sure I heard reindeer on the roof one year. Surely there is still room for whimsy in children's lives, even in our fast-paced, media driven, Britney-Spears-wanna-be-shaking-they-rumps zeitgeist.

Fuzzball

I agree, Chris. I think that the key is to not let computers/televisions/cell phones raise the kids of today. Yes, they need to be up-to-date with modern technology in order to succeed in today's world, but there are just some things that can't be done with a Ninendo GameCube. I think I need to create an entirely new post about this. Hmmmm.....

Gymshoes

Yeah! Santa lives! :-) We still do family presents and "Santa" presents, and goodies in the stockings over the fireplace. :-) I still have trouble falling asleep on Christmas Eve and still wake up at the crack of dawn on Christmas morning. I'm just a big kid. ;-)

Santa's boots tiptoing into the room with the Christmas tree and reindeer hooves on the roof cannot be duplicated realistically by Nintendo. No computer has yet created something as vivid as a believing child's (or adult's) imagination. :-)

Shan

Yep, I had the joy of believing in Santa till I was around 9 or 10, I think. I'm very glad I didn't find out earlier.
And yes, we still do presents from Santa too...wouldn't have it any other way!

Mary Ener

Ok, I've lurked long enough...

There is no Santa Claus?

At our house (even when I was a child) it's not about the man in the red suit, it's about the giving in one's heart. Therefor SANTA LIVES!!
