Seen Around the Blogosphere

After the Skittles kerfuffle last week and the unveiling of Facebook's twitterfication strategy the week before, the blogosphere has been pretty quiet as we all hold our collective Canadian breath in hopes of an end of this unpleasant season. Luckily there are still a few troopers blogging through the winter blahs.

It's also important to note the delicious presence of suicidal (and mildly sexual?) Cadbury Creme Eggs taking over the internet in all their glory - not to mention a ticking time bomb worthy of Saw VIII on display in downtown Toronto.

If food is right up your alley but you'd like it with a little more user generated content and a little less perversion, check out Doritos' new campaign to name their new, secret flavour. The competition and submissions can all be found at DoritosGuru.ca.
