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. ;)

Ah, sweetie. I know EXACTLY how you feel (8 years later). However, take the damn present! You deserve it. And you only turn 30 once (unless you are my sister, adn then you are 29 every year).

You'll be great. I think meh is in the air. But head down adn power through and we'll be fine.


I'm so sorry you're stressing about finances. I know it sucks. I also know exactly what you mean about not wanting to ask your Dad. People think I'm crazy when I have help to readily available, but they don't quite understand how it makes me feel. Hang in there Sweetie and if you need to talk, I'll gladly listen.


Chin up old girl. 30 is a great age. Remember what that philosopher Bob Dylan said, "Money doesn't talk it swears, obscenities, who really cares, all is phony."

Ahhh to be thirty again. Enjoy. Worry about the money later.


I hate when I fall into a funk. I'm here if you wanna talk.

Or drink heavily. Whatever.


I really need to have a talk with your father....


Oh, honey, if 3G's is all the debt you are in, you are in good shape. And since dental places (jeezus, mary and josef, what did you have done for it to be that much AFTER insurance?!?!? Granted, dental insurance does suck these days) usually offer payment plans, you CAN get out of it and probably in a decently short amount of time.

I'm with everyone else on the contagious "meh" going around. I can't get motivated to do anything, let alone update. . .


It's not just you. We're clawing our way out from under dental bills right now and last year and the year before we were clawing our way out from under medical bills. We have insurance, but it still sucks the life (not to mention the fun) out of our budget. Everyone goes through this. Everyone is in debt. If you think they aren't it's because they're not talking about it. Welcome to the 21st century.

Yes, I vote with everyone else: if your parents want to buy you a nice extravagant present, let them. I know where you're coming from on this (been there), but in my experience it's better to get that big nice present you couldn't afford because it may be a while before you can afford it. Not getting it will just make you feel the deprivation of the current budgetary constraints (eg being broke) more keenly. OTOH, getting whatever your heart desires will be uplifting; having the new toy (whatever it may be) will help you get through the lean times. This is the voice of experience here. :-)

You will be solvant again. You will be happy. You will have a happy birthday. :-) (Happy Birthday!)


Happy birthday in advance! I know how stressful the financial stuff can be, but it always seems to work out in the long run. I'll definitely keep you in my thoughts.


I hate spending money on dental work more than anything else in life. It's such a crock. I wish I could have all my teeth yanked out and replaced with those fancy screw-in dentures and be done with it once and for all.

I agree that you should take the present and enjoy it. Plus, it's not like a new bed is exactly frivolous. (Except I'm kind of hoping it'll be a new lens because then we all get to enjoy it. Is that selfish?)


So what you're saying is that you don't think that my readers would want to have a big slumber party at my house if I got a new mattress?

Damn. :D


Hey, I was just naturally assuming you'd get the new lens. :-) Which we all really would benefit from. ;-)
