No Google, I meant "recipe", but that's okay.

I love them. They're so exciting and surprising (duh). I like not knowing what's coming up. It's makes new things much more exciting!
Which is why I don't like:
1) Watching television advertisements for TV shows that I'm following. (eg. Lost, I don't really mind for a sitcom).
2) Watching trailers for films. (eg. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1, Camp Rock 2)
3) Reading a synopsis of a book.
Being caught off guard (with good things) is one of my favourite feelings.

There's this website called xkcd and it has funny little cartoons. I was looking at the "About" section and here was one of the questions the moderator answered:
How do I write "xkcd"? There's nothing in Strunk and White about this.
For those of us pedantic enough to want a rule, here it is: The preferred form is "xkcd", all lower-case. In formal contexts where a lowercase word shouldn't start a sentence, "XKCD" is an okay alternative. "Xkcd" is frowned upon.I thought that was pretty witty.
