And the winner is… (aka: someone will be a happy iPod shuffle owner soon!)


All good things come to an end… and so did my birthday (and Rainy London‘s!)

To all of you who felt a rush of creativeness and sent me a cool entry, thanks! You made my day 🙂

Honestly, some were so good it has been hard to decide! This is why my decision is based on several factors:

a) you are not winning if… I already gave you a Rainy London’s gift for Xmas!

b) you are winning if the sentence is not too soppy 🙂

c) you are not winning only because you added videos/pictures (even though I loved them!)

d) so, last but not least, basically you are winning if your entry made me laugh and it shows you like how R.L. is..



A mention to Laura Miccoli, for her creative Rainy Espresso Cup!

Another mention to Leonardo Maccaferro, who I know is busy with a new addition to the family and found the time to join the comp!

Thanks to those of you who joined on Twitter and shared with me funny ideas on puddles, wellies, being in the rain and then get warm again or rainbow and sunny days!

I know many more took part and – I hope – had fun but I am now glad to announce that with the wittiest and funniest entry of all (at least for me), the winner is…

Matt Young, who wrote:

Rainy london is…  unnecessarily pessimistic about the British weather!

This encapsulates the idea of Rainy London’s name, too, and also – let’s be honest! – also the real, all-British weather-related issue!

Plus Matt is a Japanese translator, and I ❤ Japanese – currently learning it, but it will probably take many (more) years before I can speak decently…

Anyway, thanks Matt!

And thank YOU all for joining this comp.

Alla prossima,
