Quickie Poll Results: Ending Peekers and Emoticon Parentheses

Daily Doodle: Granny Reads A Book

Last weekend, I asked on Twitter how many people sometimes peeked at the ending while they were reading a book. 67% of you said YES. Shame on you cheaters! (Ok, I secretly admit that I've done it once. BUT ONLY ONCE.)

Another quickie survey question I asked a while back was about the use of emoticons and parentheses. My question: "If you were going to add a prenthesis to an emoticon at the end of a sentence, which would you use?

The choices:

A) Squirrels are evil and taking over my backyard (and the world :)

B) Squirrels are evil and taking over my backyard (and the word :))

A whopping 93% of you chose (B).

I'm with the majority, if you're curious.

Thanks to all who participated!

I also would've chosen "B" and I've never understood why anyone would want to peek at the end of a book before having read it. It's like knowing the end of a movie before watching it. All the suspense and questions are gone! What's the point of the ride then? : /
