Originally, this blog – this post – was to be about a great many things. Simon’s recent interview, what fandom really means, and a plethora of other things that I wrote, re-read and deleted. Repeat.
Instead, this blog post is going to be a good-bye of sorts. I don’t want to get into the details, because in this case, they really do not matter to anyone but Amanda and me. What matters most is that Amanda and I have agreed to take a break, and it will be the most significant break we have ever taken from Daily Duranie. We’ve been at this for four years, six months and three days, as of today. I don’t even know how many posts that is offhand, but it’s a lot. Our collective spirits need a break. It’s not that the blog or being a Duran Duran fan isn’t fun….but it isn’t very much fun right now. We need a real refresher, with hopes that if and when we get back to it, we’ll be recharged and ready. So, we’re calling this our “Spring Break”.
For the next few weeks or so, you can imagine that we’re on a beach somewhere. Well, I am anyway…. Amanda probably isn’t because she’d be telling me that she’s baking alive or something like that. Maybe just imagine us in a bar somewhere. Having many vodka tonics and not talking about Duran Duran or fandom. That’s probably more accurate (well, the vodka tonic part certainly is). The good news is that we can make this whole bar scene happen in a couple of weeks when Amanda arrives in California for a visit.
