Thoughts of the day…
Shock and gratitude
I wasn’t even planning to blog, much less sit down and write a follow-up to Saturday’s Hall of Fame ceremony. After all, I wasn’t even there! I sat here at home, tuned in to the red carpet bit on YouTube, then settled in for a night of television. I checked my phone a couple of […]
We always knew
I used to roll my eyes at the thought of Duran Duran being inducted into the Hall of Fame. For years, it was sort of the side joke I’d snicker about in private with close friends. Not that I didn’t feel Duran Duran was worthy. My feeling was, if Depeche Mode and the Go-Go’s could […]
Don’t Stop Believing
Since 2005, I have traveled to see Duran Duran quite a few times. Some trips have been very short – like a three day weekend to and from New York City. (Why I ever thought that was a good idea, I’ll never know) I felt like I was there and back within a blink of […]
A Hollywood Premiere!
I’ve had a nice change of pace this week. Rather than needing to come up with a blog-worthy topic, I’ve needed to choose which one to write about! Since I last posted, I have done the circle tour of Los Angeles, Las Vegas and back to my home in Atascadero, California. My visit to LA […]
This post has been thrashing about in my head for quite awhile now. On one hand, I’ve been angry enough to write about it for months now. On the other, I’ve been too angry to put together a cohesive post. What in the actual f*ck is going on, Ticketmaster?? Was it not enough for you […]
I acknowledge the FOMO!
In fandom, FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out) is a huge deal. A “Big Thing”, if you will. No one wants to miss a single thing, but some of us—okay, many of us—have to pick and choose what we do. Maybe it’s finances that deter us, perhaps it is geographic location, or both. (I haven’t forgotten […]
Buongiorno, famiglia mia!!
I am back. (the title says hello, or good day, my family!!) Truthfully, I landed back on US soil last week (I think it was Wednesday). As most can guess, I’ve been getting reacquainted with my house, family and schedule. Gizmo, my darling dog, is back home. He’s still giving me the “You LEFT me” […]
Life is worth the discomfort
Hi there. Again I find myself saying, “What should I be doing right now?” The answer is (as always) “not blogging.” Except that you know what? Sometimes, I really NEED to blog, and that’s okay. This is one of those times. I know this website is “technically” supposed to be about being a DD fan. […]
My spirits are high
You know what I should be doing right now? Not blogging! Alas, I felt like I needed to sit down and write. So, here I am. I find myself in the somewhat familiar position of having about 35,000 things to accomplish today, and yet I just continue to ruminate over the last week or so. […]
No Way to Fight It
I remember when I used to search for song lyrics to title my blogs. It was fun for a while, but somewhere along the line, I grew tired of having to search through songs. I knew every last line, had used many of them multiple times, and couldn’t seem to make the lyrics I had […]
