(start a rumor monday...)

faq (that's a "Q" not a "G", silly.)

wowzers. next week marks the one year anniversary of the first (and apparently most popular) "feature" on my blog, and i can't believe it. start a rumor monday... has truly turned this here web log into a monster, not only making my dream of popularity come true (a lesson to all the geeks in high skool: you may never become homecoming queen, but you can blog 'til your ass is internet famous), but also assisting in the creation of my online persona, summer m. (who has the audacity to harrass her unpaid interns, coin herself a blogstar, and refer to herself in the third person.)

though i've yet to win any black weblog awards (whoever was the first to say it was an honor simply to be nominated is full of shit), this rumor bidness has really helped my ego. you all know how to make a homegyrl feel good about herself, esp. when this here grad skool be trying to "work me over" if i may use whitney "sho ya right" houston's words. thus, it is with great sadness that i announce the end of start a rumor monday.

listen, i know that my genius often comes off as effortless to you all, but don't get it twisted: coming up with a rumor can sometimes be harder than getting a date. (actually, that's a lie. i could come up with another year's worth of rumors before i ever got a date, but i digress. the point is the shit is sometimes hard.) don't cry; dry your eyes (here comes your mother with those two little guys). here, at fecundmellow, when we go out, we go out with a bang.

start a rumor monday... is for the people. so, before i end it all, i'ma do two t'ings.
1) i'ma answer some of the questions i've received about this here feature throughout the year. from: "why'd you start doing this?" and "where do you come up with this shit?" to: "do you think this shit is funny?" i'll (finally reply). thus, if there's something you wanna know, just ask. i'll publish my answers later in the week.

2) if my math is correct (i doubt it), i've published 49 rumors since december 6, 2004. i'ma go into the vaults, and publish one entry with links to every rumor published so far. tentatively, i'll republish a (remixed) rumor maybe once a month. a best of, if you will. gotta favorite you wanna see again? lemme know.
just my way of saying thanx.

that is all.

is sarm really ending? no, silly. it's just a rumor. i'm reloading. hopefully with more "you pick the rumor..." and guest contributors (that means saf, and other folks who seem to have mad ideas about the next rumor i should start.)

coming up: the 12 days of crunkmas will be back in full effect this holiday season.

I mean, it's not like I won't still love you if you stop spreading rumors. Just that they're such a good week-starter. I know that seemingly effortless things are actually the hardest to do, so I appreciate your philanthropic contributions to my happiness thus far. :)

yes kili, she's got all the star qualities that one might want in an internet crush. who could ask for anything more? i'm sure the modesty is just an alluring attempt to draw the in the cyber groopies and bring us closer to the greatness that is summer "fecundmellow" mcdonald.

@kil: um...are you laughing at me?

in my spare time, i enjoy long walks on the beach, reading shakespeare aloud, and writing poetry to women i only know via the internet.

@phoenix: *ignoring your comment* did you just refer to me by my government?
