Does Firefox Know Me?

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


So, the other day, I was actually using Firefox instead of Chrome. And this happened.

Don't let dress codes get in the way of fun socks!

It summarizes my philosophy towards socks!

Seriously. Several of my favorite Christmas/Birthday gifts the past few years have included fun socks! I was inspired by a teacher at a place with definite dresscodes for everything except the socks. So, yep. It’s as though Firefox knows me!

Which, again, it shouldn’t. My main browsing isn’t through Firefox. Oh well. Fun times!

Happy Thursday!

Hello, Fluffsters. I am very happy.

A friend gave me a wonderful Christmas present… Here’s a picture.

Fuzzy polka-dotted socks


Yes, they’re socks. Fluffy, fuzzy, furry socks. Aren’t they fantastic?

Anywho. Happy Monday!

Fuzzy Slippers (2)

Hello, Fluffsters! Happy Wednesday! Wow, can you believe it’s Wednesday again already?

Anyways. Today, I’m continuing the series from yesterday, and writing about:

Fuzzy Slippers (part 2)

Slippers with and without “sticky” Soles

Yes, that’s my next set of “two” comparisons. You can either get slippers with high friction stuff on them, or not. The amount of non-friction stuff you get also varies.

All-rubber Soled Slippers.

These have their place. They are not always too objectionable, either. In fact, my main pair of genuine slippers has rubber soles.

There are several advantages to this type of slipper.

1) You don’t fall on wood or tile floors. That, of course, is usually a plus.


Right. Usually. I’m sure there are certain instances when people would want to fall. Gravity checks, for example.

Ok, you’ve got me. What are “gravity checks”? Is that when

Heavens, no! Gravity checks are a public service whereby a person limits muscle control in order to ensure that gravity is still working. At the same time, they also usually end up examining the floor.

You mean they fall down.

That’s a less graceful way to put it, but yes. So, rubber soled slippers make gravity checks a bit harder. But moving on.

2) Sturdy soles allow you to wear your slippers outside. This allows you to use your slippers as props for movies. After all, how are you going to film a movie in Suburbia if you can’t go get your newspaper in your bath robe and slippers?

That’s about it for the advantages of sticky soles that I can think of.

Partially Sticky Soled Slippers

Basically, there are two advantages.

1) fewer accidental gravity checks, and

2) they take less room than the completely sticky-soled slippers. (Try saying that quickly three times in a row!) But it’s true. There are some slippers that have just a little bit of flexible, sticky stuff on the soles. These are still very compact slippers, and take less room than the full-rubber-soled slippers that cannot bend.

Non-Sticky-Soled Slippers

Aren’t these normally referred to as “socks”?

…They’re fuzzier than most socks. So maybe, but it doesn’t matter. They still have advantages. Such as:

1) SLIPPER SLIDING!! If you can stand on a slippery surface somewhere, you can also slide on it. Just take a running start, and… SLIDE! Fluffy slippers like that are the best for sliding.

2) Extra-Super-Hyper-Compact. These are slippers you can take with you anywhere. In fact, you probably should take them with you wherever you go, since they can also serve as packing material! Do you have a book you don’t want getting crushed? Pack your slippers around them! Do you want a pillow? Lean back against a slipper!

WHAT? No. Just no. That’s gross.

Ok, yeah. Maybe you shouldn’t use them as a pillow.

Packing material is still legit though.

So there you go, Fluffsters! I hope you enjoyed the analysis of this dichotomy of fuzzy slippers. Have a great rest of your weak!

What to do with the Random Pair of Socks in your Purse.

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

Greetings, Fluffsters! Happy Sunday!

Today, I’m going to be talking to you about:

What to do with the random pair of socks you find in your purse.

Ok. There’s got to be a story behind that one.

…What? Not everyone keeps a pair of socks in their purse?

Clearly not, by merit of the fact that the socks are “randomly” there.

It wouldn’t be random if they’re usually there.

Oh. Good point. Unless the socks themselves were randomly colored…?

No. So, what’s with the pair of socks in your purse?

Actually, I’m not entirely sure why I put them there this time.

This time?!

Yeah! I don’t know why they’re there this time. I don’t even remember putting them there!

Just to clarify… This is all hypothetical, isn’t it?

You don’t just randomly keep socks in your purse?

Anyways, here are some things you can do wi-

You’re serious?

Brassicae, why me? WHY?!

As I was saying, here are some things to do with your pair of socks!

5) Brainstorm how they got there. Did they come from the gap in the space-time continuum, and avoid getting eaten by the interdimensional rabid penguins of doom? Did they come from the black hole found in all dryers that suck away miscellaneous socks? Where? (If you figure out, do let me know?)

4) Sock puppets! Instant entertainment! Find other random junk to make faces, put on your hands, and voila! Instant sock puppet-age!

3) See how long it takes for them to start molding in your purse. Of course, that would probably end up smelling bad. And probably ruin the inside of your purse. But it is something you can do with socks!

What is it with you and mold?

2) Wear them. Assuming they aren’t part of your mold collection, of course. Because that would just be gross otherwise.

1) Write a blog post about them. And then talk about things you can do with them.

You were serious.

Yup! I found a random pair of socks in my purse, and I’m not sure how they got here this time. So, fluffsters, any recommendations? Or thoughts on how they got there?

And happy Sunday! I hope you have a wonderful week!

You look comfortable. Let me change that.

Hello, Fluffsters.

I can’t tell you how glad I am that the challenge thing is over!

Now I expect to do a few more of the posts, again. And maybe we’ll actually go back to decent, pure fluff content, not all of the “what is comfortable” stuff.

On a related note, after all of those “comfort” posts of the month, I think you look comfortable. Let me change that. Here’s a picture of a deranged penguin.

A slightly loopy looking penguin

I’m not sure this penguin’s entirely sane…

And I just realized, that might make a good t-shirt! Give me a moment… And another… and… HERE WE GO!

New and Now

For a limited time, t-shirts, and other miscellaneous items with that design, are on sale in my CafePress shop. (Found in the “New and Now” section.)

So, thoughts: Should I have one with just the penguin? How about just “You look comfortable. Let me change that.”? Should I try to do an owl instead?

Comments are welcome and appreciated!

Happy Saturday, Fluffsters!

Boring Things I’m Calling Comfortable (3/6): T-Shirts

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

Greetings, Fluffsters! Happy Tuesday! I hope you had a great Memorial Day yesterday. (If any veterans or troops are reading this, thank you for your service! I greatly appreciate it.)

As you may recall from yesterday’s post, I’m turning this week into a series on boring things that I’m calling comfortable for the sake of the “comfort” challenge.

So, remind me why you signed up for it?

Because I thought it would be a good idea… I didn’t realize how boring it would get. Or that my target audience is so totally different from the usual readers of those sorts of things!

…So why are you still doing this?

Well, I’m not going to stop with 4 days to go! Anyways, I have a few ideas that will work for these posts.

Ok. You’re the Webmaster.

Thank you.

Anyways. Today’s topic is


T-shirts are comfortable for multiple reasons.

1) it’s good to wear clothing. It can be cold outside. T-shirts help protect your skin from weather. Going without a shirt would just be awkward, too.

2) T-shirts can be loose, and nobody cares. It’s a t-shirt. The only thing people care about with t-shirts is whether it says something cute or is a good color. Lime green, for example, is seldom a good color for a t-shirt. Just FYI.

3) They can be light-weight or heavy. If you get a light weight t-shirt, it can be a much cooler garment than other types of shirts. If you get a heavier one, it can be warmer than others.

4) No buttons. Self explanatory.

And this topic was a nice segue into another topic: I have opened a CafePress store! Right now, everything in it is on sale. Prices on most of those items will be going up a bit on Saturday.

But here’s where you come in: I want feedback. What sorts of things do you want to see in my store? More quotes? More images? Do you have a quote you want me to turn into a t-shirt? A favorite blog post you want me to turn into purchasable format? I want your opinions, Fluffsters!

Leave your comments below, and I’ll read ’em! Or if you’d rather contact me privately, you can reach me at Webmaster [at] totalfluff.com. (No spaces, of course. 😉 )

I look forward to hearing from you, Fluffsters! And again, Happy Tuesday.
