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. ;)

Bonus points for the Fantasy Island reference. :o) You can stay.


Oh as if there was ever a question of me staying ;)

Da plane! Da plane!


I gotta say, after reading the "50 Things She Wishes You Knew", I was offended. That list just sucked and you are totally on point.


What's sad is that I know girls who would write this list. Sigh.


This is what happens when MEN write a list about what women want.
Well, I'm assuming it was men because if a woman wrote that list she is an asshole.
It is lists like this that give women a bad name.
You were spot on!


@Torrie: No, dude! A WOMAN wrote the article! That's the worst part! Can you imagine being in a relationship with a woman like that? JESUS!


why do leather pants always have to be brought up? do people try to regularly get away with wearing leather pants? it seems like someone is always saying, "only rock stars get away with those," but is there ever anyone someone in the vicinity wearing them? how does this make lists anymore? there was one guy one time who tried it, and he failed, and some idiot kept this going for 45 years. i hate people.


I could not agree with your more on these. The '50 Things She Wishes You Knew' was painfully ignorant. Though she hit the nail on the head about men being sexy when they're shaving, fixing things, and holding babies.


Ummm... I SWEAR I posted a comment on this yesterday. WTF??? Oh well, here goes again...

It shouldn't be any surprise to you that I agree with you on pretty much everything, especially the part where you say "It's even better when you whisper it really close so you tickle our necks." Oh good GAWD yes!! *swoons*

The chick who wrote that article needs to be slapped. Hard. Jeebus!

Erin and I must have had the same problem because I know I left a comment here the other day!

I am completely guilty of number 5. It's totally an ingrained fear that I cannot get rid of since I don't want kids ever. As a matter of fact, it's partly the inspiration for Neurotic Fishbowl. I know it's crazy, but I totally can't help it.

I was just thinking about number 33 the other day and how I love all the random little things about guys that just makes me think "man." Now I wish I had a date. lol


I LOVE how you actually wrote out 'om nom nom nom'. I may steal that. But I did the responsible thing and let you KNOW I was stealing it. More like borrowing without explicit permission.
I also fully agree with the 'if you're going to cheat, just leave first'. I've actually told the boyfriend this.


I think every woman needs their own personal handbook like this. Not everyone's as high-maintenance as this chick, but there's so many unusual quirks out there, and it'd be nice to know in advance which ones send seemingly normal women off the deep end.

Just a few examples I found in real life:
-Leaving the shower curtain open
-Touching her shoes
-Putting silverware in the dishwasher

And in every instance, they always expected me to know better.

Surprisingly, I haven't found one yet who cares about the toilet seat being up.


Makes me want to do a list. You were right on with this. Women can be nuts. :)


"I want to be Madonna"?!

Are you kidding me?

When was this list written? 1987?

The Pear Lady

Oh heck yeah, you got it all right here. Great commentary. :D


@Datadog - Me. Leaving the toilet seat up will send me off the deep end. Because nothing sucks as much as a cold toilet in the middle of the night when you accidentally sit on it and the seat was left up. Grrrr.

The rest of that list makes me want to hurt the author or take a spork to my eyes. Is she crazy??? Whatever.
