Not sure if we like surprises

Scary clown

WordPress.com, the kind and (usually) gentle host of this site, has thrown an interesting curveball at its users: “Surprise me” mode. In an unusually evil twist, they’re being rather coy about this feature’s effects:

I’m not going to tell you exactly what it does. If you’re open to new things and serendipitity in your blogging life try leaving it on as you go about your normal blogging activities of posting, commenting, checking your stats, and such, and see what pops up.

Usually I like WP’s surprises, so I went ahead and enabled it. Who knows what we’ll see. But this post is super-awesome.

No clowns, though. If clowns start coming out of the computer, I’m running for the hills.

Update: So far, it seems to be safe. I’ve got several posts to write, though.
