Lisa René LeClair is a writer, humorist, social media junkie, and a mom who shares childhood stories and bad advice for your amusement at Sassypiehole, a humor blog with a twist of unfiltered reality that speaks to a wide range of emotions. From nonsensical stories and videos, to badass product reviews, Sassypiehole is a one-stop shop for parents with a deep appreciation for comedy and all things cool. (We also suspect her to be a Christmas freak, but don’t tell her we said that.) If you enjoy a good cry as much as a good laugh and are not easily offended, you are Lisa’s kind of people (ours, too)!
Lisa got SPRING FEVER, like real bad, and went on a YouTube binge (her second one, apparently). She called her
binge series of video clips “Common Sense Etiquette.” It starts with “How to Close a Shampoo Bottle.” (No, we are not making this up.) She is a self-confessed OCD–just a bit, and she must have likes things in their place, including glops of oozing shampoo, as in KEEP THE SHAMPOO IN THE FREAKING BOTTLE–AND NOT ALL OVER THE TUB AND SHOWER! Apparently, her family is shampoo-bottle challenged, and Lisa did what any mom blogger would do, she made a series of YouTube clips. (And we couldn’t be more proud!) But she didn’t stop there, no, no, no! Her commitment to the “common sense and etiquette challenged” is impressive, with more clips like “How to Shut a Door,” and “How to Straighten Something.” If you know someone who is in need of help, here is the link to some of her “life-saving courtesy” YouTube clips.
When she’s not
ranting about instructing “manner-less freaks” on YouTube, she’s ranting on her blog. Recently, she made a list of the top 20 reasons why moms should celebrate the 1st day of school. Our personal favorite: “The only whine you’ll hear is the sound of cork popping.” We would add one more to her list, “massive amounts of tweeting.” Lisa is a rock star on Twitter, she has over 19,000 followers, and her tweets don’t disappoint, tweets like “Must be NICE to have all that free time! #TenThingsNotToSayToAWriter,” and “If laughing is jogging on the inside, why are there so many people still at the gym? I should leave so they can work out another muscle.”
Lisa loves to share in the freakishness of motherhood, and she hosts special guests on her blog, guests like The Unfit Father: “an honest and hysterical stay-at-home dad” who wrote about “turning toddlers into teens, the parenting change, and pimping yourself out for the sake of your child’s social life.”
And when she’s not hosting other snarky bloggers on her site, she’s getting sassy on Instagram! Our personal fav, an image that says: “I’m going to make you sit there all night thinking about nothing, and everything, until the alarm goes off. Then I’ll shut up.” ~Insomnia
Did you hear!? She JUST had a baby! No, not the crying kind! It doesn’t even wear diapers! Lisa is a contributing author to the mom anthology, It’s Really 10 Months Special Delivery: A Collection of Stories From Girth to Birth. “You will laugh, you will cry, you will have all the glory that goes along with having a baby but you don’t have to get up for those 3 a.m. feedings!” And what a perfect gift for your favorite mom, including yourself!Lisa René LeClair of Sassypiehole UNPLUGGED
Lastly, Lisa would like to share three funky facts that people don’t know about her:
“I have an irrational fear of hot air balloons.”
“My very first job was directing traffic at the Ohio State Fair.”
“I dated a stripper when I was 18. Doc Rock. Not kidding.” [Is there a video clip of that?!]
