About the Blog

Welcome!

I’m not sure how you found yourself here, but take off your shoes (…that’s not a request, it’s super creepy when people don’t take off their shoes), relax, and stay awhile. I hope you didn’t come here in search of the Himalayan cat from Homeward Bound or the board game Balderdash… You’re in for some disappointment.

First there was Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, then there was Salt-n-Pepa, and now there’s Sass & Balderdash. You probably have no idea what you’re in for… So I’ll tell you.

sass (n): insolent or impudent talk or behavior

balderdash (n): senseless or exaggerated talk in writing

You know how you sometimes get that urge to cook or bake and you convince yourself you’re the next Emeril Lagasse in that you can change recipes and make substitutions wherever you see fit and the result will still taste amazing, but in reality you shouldn’t be allowed in the kitchen and the concoction you come up with is inedible and food-poisoning inducing? Well that’s kind of what Sass & Balderdash is. …Only without the food poisoning. (Bad analogies aren’t a trademark of this blog, either. Well. Maybe sometimes.)

There’s no theme here at Sass & Balderdash–I don’t only share personal stories or write clever lists. One day you might be reading about the horrors of the grocery store checkout line, and the next day it’ll be a 3,000-word story about some way I humiliated myself in public. There’s no shtick. Sass & Balderdash could best be described as a humor blog that broaches serious topics,

a tongue-in-cheek blog that sometimes crosses over into the profound,

a autobiographical endeavor that isn’t simply anecdotes and memoirs,

a weight loss blog whose author loves cheesecake,

a blog about every day life from the perspective of a snarky, yet charmingly bashful young woman.

You may not agree with everything you read here. You may read things that make you uncomfortable or angry. You may hate me a little sometimes, but keep in mind that nothing you’ll read here is ever written with malicious intent—the object of this blog is to entertain, inspire thought, and promote and celebrate the cathartic release of any and all of those thoughts many of us keep to ourselves, from the humorous to the borderline vulgar to the controversial to the silly to the insightful.

As the bouncer of this sassy space, I make no claims to be an authority on anything other than my own opinion based on my experiences. The topics this blog covers are all things I could and would easily work into everyday conversation.

If you’re in, I’d love for you to become a sasshole, because you’ll always be welcome here.
