If you were at my house this week, you’d hear a mixture of sighs of relief tumbling with anxious worry of report cards to come. It’s the final week of school, and I’ll be honest – it hasn’t been optimal. We need this summer break. *I* need this summer break, and we are all hoping for a better school year once mid-August hits.

Once upon a time, there were two Duran Duran fans. One named Amanda, the other named Rhonda. Over many vodka tonics, they would laugh about the idea of one day writing a book about their fan experiences. While that manuscript is still being composed...Rhonda thought they should write a blog. (What was she THINKING?!) Lo and behold: The Daily Duranie was born.
