Passive Voice

From a fortune cookie last night:

The wise thing to do is to prepare for the unexpected this week.

Dude.  Total passive voice.  Weasel-y language bugs me.  Take a position.  Is something unexpected going to happen?  Good?  Bad?  Or just surprising?  How do I prepare if I don't know the context?  Lame.
