Heads Up-date: NaBloPoMo

Note: If this is your first time to TotalFluff, please visit this brief explanation. Thanks!

Hello, everyone! Just letting you know, I signed this blog up for a “challenge” thing.

…You did what?

I signed up for a themed “National Blog Post Month” (NaBloPoMo) Challenge thingamabop.


So, are you going to elaborate on that? Or are you leaving us in suspense as to what that means?

Oh, explanations! Right! Sorry!

Basically, what this means is that I’m supposed to write a blog post every day for the month of May. And hypothetically, the blog posts are supposed to relate to the theme of “comfort”. It’s sponsored through a group called BlogHer, and, well, instructions for the challenge can be found here.

Now, hypothetically this won’t impact your reading experience that much. I may use their prompts, I may not. If I do, it will be because the prompt seems fairly fluffy. If I don’t, it’s because I wanted to do something different. But I thought you might want to know anyways. The challenge starts tomorrow, so that should be fun!

You and I may have a different sense of the word “fun”…

What? I’m looking forward to asking some of the questions in the prompts!

Oh. Dear. Yup, you have a very different definition of the word “fun”.

Well, tough. Live with it.

Anyways, happy Tuesday, everyone! I hope your week goes well.

5 Things that Amuse Me

Note: If this is your first time to Total Fluff, please visit this brief explanation.

Hello, readers! I hope you had a wonderful weekend.

Now that the week has started again, I’m sure you’re looking for new ways to procrastinate! Or at least looking for things to amuse.

Seriously? You’re waiting until after the weekend to give some time wasters?

Of course. People are more likely to be outside and stuff on the weekend. But during the week? Looking at things on the internet is fair game. And anyways, don’t they need something to look forward to for the next weekend?

So, without further ado:

5 things that amuse me

1) I know that I’ve mentioned it before, but is one of my favorite blogs. Ever. (Not including this one, of course.) Jen Yates, the creator of the site, has an amazing sense of humor. Seriously, I think she’s one of my role-models in the blog sphere!

2) Looking at dessert recipes. And trying to figure out how to change them. One of my favorite recipe sites is The dessert section has some inspiring ideas! And then after you get some ideas, you can do a Google search, and find other recipes and ideas. I came across recipes for ganache and flourless chocolate cake that are amazing. And now I’ve slightly modified them. And those are also fantastic. So you should check it out! Who knows what wonderful desserts you might find?

4) Pushing random buttons on my computer, and seeing what happens. Especially in different programs. I’ve actually discovered a lot of hotkeys this way! For example, do not press ctrl+w, ctrl+shift+w, or alt+f4 right now. Those would exit you out of this window/program, and that would make me sad.
Of course, one of the problems is that I not infrequently forget what I did to get a result… That led to an annoying time when I was using a word processor, and somehow got into “draft mode” and couldn’t figure out what I’d done, what combination of keys I pressed, or how to escape. I think I randomly got out of there, finally. But even now, I don’t know what I did. But seriously! It’s a lot of fun!

5) Darths & Droids. Once again, I’ve already mentioned this. But it’s hilarious. Especially if you’re at all aware of RPG culture and mechanics, and if you’re a Star Wars fan. Both parts are essential if you want to enjoy it. And be sure to read the description down at the bottom. It never ceases to amuse me. The authors have such an amazing sense of humor!

3) Trying to play with people’s minds in general. Did you notice that the lists is out of order? You can play with people’s minds in a variety of ways. One way is by figuring out odd ways of listing things. Another way is by coming up with random questions. And then asking people those questions. You really should see people’s expressions when I ask them “How would you respond if I made some sort of comment about pickle-headed stinkradishes of doom, death, and destruction right now?” It’s not dissimilar to the time I went around asking people about muffin-flavored shrimp. But playing with people’s minds is quite fun! You get some of the oddest looks.

Anyways, Happy Monday! I hope this provides some useful ways to amuse yourself for the week. These methods normally amuse me!

Elephant-like Animals: An Infographic

Note: if this is your first time to, please visit this brief explanation.

Hello, readers! Happy Sunday!

For your perusal today, I created another infographic-

-Oh dear…

-This time about animals that are just like elephants!

Seriously? I think I’m leaving now. Since I apparently know more about the wildlife on your world than you do, this can’t end well.

Ooh, I finally got rid of Fluffy? Wonderful!

I saw that! No, I’m still here. I’m just going to try to ignore your monstrosity “infographic.”

Darn. Well, anyways. Here it is!

4 animals that are just like elephants!

Happy Sunday!

Clouds Inside Buildings? Why Not?

Note: If this is your first time to TotalFluff, please visit this explanation.

Once again, I have found something from your world that actually impresses me.


Yes! Isn’t it shocking?

Anyways, this is something that seriously makes the actress in me jealous. Really jealous. A person has found a way to make clouds form inside a building.

Really? That’s so cool!

It really is! I’m shocked!

Anyways, readers, Happy Saturday!

Cute Owl Taking a Bath!!

Note: If this is your first time to TotalFluff, please visit this brief rundown.

Oh my, I just found one of the cutest videos EVER.

…It’s an owl taking a bath. So?

No. I don’t think you understand. There is no “so”. It’s an owl. A young fluffy owl. Taking a bath.

Ok… And?

“And” what? How can you say “and” to something so amazingly adorable as that?

Easily. Really, what’s the point?

Did you honestly ask me what the point is? It’s an amazingly darling owl, and you’re asking me about the point?

Oh. Right. I forgot; the more pointless, the better for you.

Oh come on. At least admit it’s cute?

It’s certainly fluffy. I’ll grant you that.

…I guess I’ll take what I can get.

Anyways, happy Friday! It’s the weekend!

Flirting from the Sky

Note: If this is your first time to TotalFluff, please visit this explanation.

Just when I think your world can’t get any sillier…

What, did you find some other sort of creature that can melt?

No, I didn’t. Those were cool! Are there any more?

You know, I have no idea.

Oh. Well anyways. As I was saying, one of the American airline companies is trying to hook people up mid flight.

Wait… What?

Virgin America is now allowing people to flirt with other passengers in the air.

Uh… Couldn’t people already do that?

Not so easily, now. You see, this time, they’re allowing people to purchase food and beverages for other passengers. It allows them to view a digital seat map. I mean, I feel really sorry for that poor system!

Wait, what?

You say that a lot…

Anyways. I’m forced to live with the silliness of fluff you provide. But at least I can escape. But those systems? Their entire purpose in life is to work for one of the most pointless things I can think of: Flirting with someone you’ve never seen before in your life, and truly likely never will see again.

But isn’t that the purpose of flirting?

…Your world really does get sillier with time.

Anyways, readers, happy Thursday! It’s almost the weekend; enjoy!

Two Worthwhile Webpages

Hello, everyone! I hope your middle-of-the-week goes quite well.

In order to help ensure that it does, I have decided to share a link with you, a link of mind-blowing cuteness. Don’t say I didn’t warn you. But one of my favorite blogs,, has just shared a whole lot of totally adorable art that you have to check out. Seriously. Did you go yet? I mean, YODA! Look at him. I can’t get over it!

…Really? Two over-the-top fluffs in a row?

Well, I guess I need to balance out the “adorableness” of this one, too. I think I have lost all hope for humanity, due to some people fanning over nonexistent bands. Although I do have to admit, it’s an amusing video. You would enjoy watching it.

Yeah, whatever, Fluffy.

Anyways, readers, I hope you have a wonderful day!

As a random-question-of-the-moment, what would you do with a purple orange?

Five Uses for Feather Boas (Alright, Ten)

Note: If this is your first time here, please visit this brief rundown. Thanks!

Happy Tuesday, folks! I hope your week started off well.

Well, with Irish music like what I found yesterday, how could it not have?

My, aren’t we full of ourselves today?

Oh, you are too?

Anyways, I’m here today to talk to you about one of the most delightfully fluffy fashion accessories on the face of the earth:

The Feather Boa

A Feather Boa? Snakes on your world have feathers?

Oh. No. Not that type of boa. No, Feather boas are a fashion accessory! They look a bit like this:

An Illustration of a fuzzy furry feather boa

Purple Fluff, in Accessory Form!


Uh, what?

So. Flippin. Fuzzy. What do you even do with it?

Ah, how convenient! That leads me to the topic of:

Top Five Things to do with a Feather Boa

1) Wear it around your neck. It’s sort of like a big long feathery scarf.

That… would clash with everything. And it would get itchy.

Hush, Fluffy! Will you let me finish? Please?

Ok, ok, sorry. Finish your list…

Thank you. So as I was saying, if you wear it around your neck, it’s like a really long feather scarf. And really warm! After all, that fluff traps a lot of heat. It’s great for cold winter days.

2) Cut it to an appropriate length, and use it as a headband. Like with the scarf, it will keep your head warm. And be quite the daring look!

3) Give it to a child for dress-up. It adds instant class to any child’s wardrobe, and will let her have a lot of fun. The boas come in all sorts of colors! Hot Pink? Instant princess! Black? You’re princess Batman! Lime Green? Celebrity. And there are so many more!

4) Give to a child as a toy. And now the child can use it with her stuffed puppy as a leash! And that leash has such class.

5) Decorating. I haven’t actually tried this, but I imagine Red and Green Feather Boas can so easily be used to add festive cheer. Put them on the walls, around the windowsill, or anywhere where you’d normally use tinsel. This would provide a softer look. Let me know if that works? I imagine you can use pastel colors for a spring look. And so many more!

Well, there you go! Happy Tuesday!


I think this is where my main purpose comes into play… That was WAY to fluffy to be healthy. So, here we go:

Top 5 Things Fluffy Would Like to See Feather Boas Used For

1) fire-starters. Assuming they’re not made of non-flammable or toxic material, all that fuzz looks like it would start a fire amazingly. At the very least, it would get rid of the boa.

2) Fluffifier Decoys. Wanting to know who in the room is way too obsessed with fluff and fuzz? Pull out the feather boa. Toss it in some random direction. Watch and see how many people in the room go after it. Congratulations, you’ve now found all the Fluffifiers in the room!

3) Cleaning rag. Hopefully, by the time you’ve used it to wash enough greasy dishes, it will no longer be so… fluffy. At the very least, it will probably be a lot grungier, and therefore slightly less obnoxious.

4) A slingshot. And if you use sharp enough rocks or other projectiles, the fuzz will start to wear off. No more Feather Boa! Yay!

5) A rope Ladder. To a tree-house. Eventually, all that will be left is the base. And who knows, it might even attract more birds! And once again, you achieve the purpose of “no more feather boa.” And besides, what tree-house doesn’t need a snake-like creature hanging down from it?

And with that, readers, happy Tuesday!

Epic Irish Music

Note: If this is your first time to totalfluff, please visit this explanation. Thanks!

Greetings, readers all! I hope this Monday finds you in good health, as you prepare to start your week.

I have spent a fair portion of my weekend once again visiting my friend YouTube. And I have found some wonderful things to share with you.

Please, not more Pad-Thai…?

Did you even look at the title?

No, Webmaster. I found that there are a variety of music varieties in your world, and that some of them are available from YouTube. Most recently, I have discovered the Irish style of music. It’s so lovely! Some of it’s quite mournful or nostalgic, a lot of it has a delightful amount of energy, and the channel I found? Those men have voices that would make my Father jealous.

And they certainly make me wish that the lead actors in the Troupe had their voices. It would have been much easier to act with voices like that, which can not only carry a tune, but make it emotive!

Wait a second… I thought that yours was one of the finest acting troupes in your world?

Of course! Male actors who can sing leave acting and become singers. So we were the best acting troupe.

But as I was saying, I have found three favorite pieces by the same group of Irish singers, The High Kings, as a way to start off your week correctly.

First is one that I think is in part about dancing. I’m not entirely sure, though, since I’ve (obviously) never been to Ireland.

I really like it for the tune.

The other one is just a fantastic way to start off a day. What energy!

I mean, seriously? How do they keep all those words coming? 

And the last one seems to be a great way to end this post. I think this is probably my favorite, but I’m not sure. Phil the Fluther’s Ball is also really close.

I hope you enjoy!

And I hope you have a wonderful week.

“Facts” about Rome: An InfoGraphic

Note: If this is your first time to TotalFluff, please visit this explanation.

Happy Foundation of Rome Day!

Oh, you actually got to a Holiday before I could? I’m quite surprised.

Well, it had to happen some time, didn’t it?

Anyways, in light of this momentous anniversary, I have created an Infographic.

Another infographic?

Yup! And I’ve illustrated it and everything!

…I’m a bit worried. So, an infographic. What’s it about?

“Facts” about Rome.

… That you may have created on the spot?

Of course!

But without further ado, here it is:

An infographic about Rome that discusses how old Rome is relative to Star Wars, how the Romans were inspired by The Hunger Games, Roman Food, and how Romulus's twin was teleported into Harry Potter World

Happy Something-Thousand-and-something Birthday, Rome!

Yup, further reading definitely required.

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: how do you even come up with this stuff?!

What? I didn’t even touch on some of the weird stuff.

That wasn’t- oh, nevermind. Happy Sunday, readers!

Yup, Happy Sunday everyone! I hope you have a great day!
