Hello, hello, me again.
Howp ye'r aw bearin up unner the wecht o wunter caulds, the joys o Christmas shoppin an Slade as weil as I am masel. That's the first semester o Uni out the wey the nou, an I dout it's gaed richt weil. Scottish Ethnology's been braw - I did a thrie thousan wurd essay on the Kirkwall Ba', an whit haippens but the SLC pits up a helpfou wee veidio aw about it!... a week EFTER I haun the thing in!
I'm leukin forrit tae neist year, an hae been daein sum wark for a new feature that we howp wull kythe on the site early in 2009 baurrin onie technical fankles. I suld aiblins be daein mair wark on the that the nou...
I ralley maun awa the nou, but jist ere I dae, ye micht like tae ken that St. Giles Cathedral on the Royal Mile nou haes it's veisiter guide in Scots, owerset by yers truly. The wifie that rinns that side o the kirk telt me that a guid monie fowk hae bocht copies (ainlie 20p) an that the guides wis rale blythe whan it cam in. It's richt there on the information-buird alang wi French, Catalan an aw the ithirs. This micht be sumthin warth daein mair o, fowk. It disna tak a muckle darg tae gae sumwhaur, tak a guide leaflet an owerset it. Email it tae the fowk that rin the place, the warst they'll say is "na." It's no as impressive or important a wark as Mr. Donati's braw owersettin o the Declaration o Human Richts, but it's anithir chuckie on the stane, an aiblins it'll prod anithir bodie intae action sumwhaur.
Cheerio for the nou, an gin I dinna get on ere then, hae a Merry Chirstmas an a braw Hogmanay
Sang o the Week : Windir - Destroy. Braw keyburid wark in this sang aff the 1184 album.
