Oh well….Rainy London’s website* will be soon 3 years old! – I know! Time flies indeed! As I’ve had loads of good comments for our cute Rainy’s cups – btw: thanks for that, folks! – I’ve decided it’s time to run a new competition for you to win one.HOW TO JOIN? Easy-peasy-lemon-squeezy: 1) follow @rainylondon on Twitter or like us on Facebook – now!
2) take a walk down your memory lane and look for the funniest thing ever happened to you.
It can be a translation- or non-translation related fun fact, a weird request from a client, simply an epic foot in the mouth or a hilarious sentence/quote/idea you overheard somewhere – that brought you the conclusion: ‘Oh I really need a cuppa now’.
Just make sure it’s true and even better if you experienced it yourself. And also, you can use any media that reinforce your point! Just send that episode/story/joke/idea in and end it with ‘Oh I really need a cuppa now’ to be in for ONE of these gorgeous cups! (for how to use, see below – the truly Italian way).
My dear colleague @erik_hansson once posted a funny story on FB that made me LOL and read more or less like this:
Client: Can I have this text translated from Swedish into English?
Erik: But this is Finnish.
Client: Does it make any difference?
I’m sure at this point Erik thought: <Oh I really need a cuppa now>
So, get cracking on it and keep entries coming on Twitter (using the #RainyCuppaComp hashtag; on Facebook, just mention Rainy London using “@” on your post) Of course, e-mails are more than welcome too: info[AT]rainylondontranslations[dot]com The coolest, funniest, most entertaining entry will get a sweet Rainy Cup delivered at home 🙂
And remember, the comp ends on Wed 8 Feb.
