a wee hairy spider

Happy belated Burns Night – had my haggis and neeps last night – but once again didn’t get round to making the cranachan damn.

Later on I did get a laugh at my research job though. I was looking into traditional Burns poems, and I came across some kids interpretations of them. The best by far was one that simply thought Burns wrote ‘those things’ about ‘a wee hairy spider’ (I’m guessing he was thinking of ‘wee sleekit cowerin’ timorous beastie’).
