Rainy Martini

Rainy Martini just got home from her four-day vacation at Carle's and Kate's.

I hate to break it to you Rainy, but you have a terribly low alcohol tolerance. Like, you get drunk in three sips. How pathetic! Before your mates run around with their eyes on the clouds, you doze off. You're the utter personification of epic fail.




Ha. It's not like it matters. I just hate it because I lose the chance of laughing with my friends. Like the clowns we are... sigh. And it's so not useful when you go to a party and your grandmothers ask you to drink wine with them and you have to excuse yourself because well, you're drunk. Already. Then the next day you can't touch your skin because it makes it more sensitive. My skin's sensitive all right. I have this rare condition called dermographism and I'm literally a walking canvas. Alcohol makes it worse.

Okay kids I know it isn't right for me to rant about my vulnerability. But it's not like it's my fault anyway.

Aaaand I have nothing to blog about. Nothing. Blangco!

Tonight is Carle's birthday celebration. I'm writing in present tense because it's still happening right now, as I type. Actually, we just finished watching that cheesy movie called Insidious. I must admit, it did scare me a bit because of the masks and dolls and stuff. I'm idiophobic like that. Well anyway, I'm not going to show you the derpier shots because lah it's kinda embarrassing. (No, I don't think that way at all. I like posting funny and candid shots. But my friends here might. So... yeah.)

From left: Danna, Me, Nel, Danielle, Kate, and Jasper. We were watching Bad Teacher then.



Lo and behold ze insidious film, Insidious! Haha. The sounds were bombastic all right. Kept us on edge. I mean, wth!









The derps are playing Uno cards and they're practically squealing and getting their heads bumped against the yellow wall. And me, I choose to sit on the cold floor just to record what happened this fateful night. I love it. It has been a while since I last left my dinky home.

We just sang Carle's birthday song lol. I'm gonna give him our gift now. (A shirt from Honduras).

Oh my god. Today (night) is my Dad's death anniversary. Almost forgot. Sheesh, I'm not supposed to go out this 26th. I mean, I went out at the 25th and decided to stay here. So it's not going at at all now is it? I need a bottle of rhum as an offering. What.

Hey, dad. I'll be home soon okay?

vieux souvenirs

My old photos. Actually they're my first shots after buying my baby, Canon. Like, the first firsts. I flew out of the gadget store to the nearest coffee lounge. That was two years ago.













Obscure angles, no? I worked on it.

/edit/

I so want to get a domain. ".blogspot.com" sure is a handful.

I'm practicing Liszt. Listen to RĂªve d'amour here. The piece I'm currently working on. Just a few recalling here and there, I'd get back to my old err... touch.

Oh yeah, sorry I'm not really in the mood to blog right now.

tourner autour du pot

My blog is edible; of that I'm utterly convinced. And in case you're wondering what internet predator gnaws at it, there isn't any. What eats this wordy chaos that was my blog is none other than Time itself. No, not the magazine I'm so crazy about. I wrote it in capital "T" to make it seem like an actual creature. A proper noun, so to speak. Granted, this dinky thing would weather out at the mercy of—surprise!—Time.

An understatement: no one wants to read an outdated blog written by a teenager trying to fiddle with her own heartstrings.



I don't wanna bore you with reasons why I didn't update. But surely I owe you an explanation. You deserve one. I am, after all, at fault.

I didn't post—and was not intending to until my friends demanded me to—because I had been a wreck this past few days. I couldn't write, couldn't even code a proper layout. I'm not certain when Rainy will emerge. She's still hung over. Talk about martinis. She's cool like that.



Okay I'm not saying I'm cool. Word to the wise: never expect a scarcely acceptable read when I'm bonkers. Like tonight. Wtf. It isn't even night yet. 2:14 PM +08:00 GMT. Told you so, I'm bonkers. I've no face to show.

This could be the last time you'll ever read my posts in this kind of point of view. I dunno, Rainy Martini is just a pseudonym I invented in lieu of my fascination of the word "martini". Maybe in the next post I'll talk about her. Like she isn't even me. That's better, don't you think?

PS, I know I know my hair is tragic.

Prelude

"I could give up cupcakes, but I'm not a quitter."





I finally gave up on piano though. That does not make me a quitter. I dunno. Maybe because I'd been a music student before I even learned how to breathe. Oh well.

Yes, the thing is, I dragged myself out of the blogosphere months ago swearing not to go back. Ten minutes later I was concentrating on a new blog name. Which was, take it from me, unproductive: ended up using my pseudonym but who cares.

This is just a sample post though. I dunno what to make of it eh. And besides, I have to pick my friend Janelle up tentatively 15 minutes from now. Layout still unfinished but again, who cares. I bet your guardian angel's soul no one ever knows about this blog.

What. I lost the bet. Izzy knows about this blog already. How can I forget? Lame.

And not to mention I already tweeted about this. Lame.

F.A.Q.

What camera do you use?

It depends, if you want a specific answer, mention the post name and I'll let you know. You see, I don't have my own camera and it's part of why this blog exists. Ironic, but this endeavor will prove how much I love photography. I mostly use iPhone 5 nowadays.

What do you use to edit photos?

Adobe Photoshop (any version available) and some online editing services like Pixlr or Fotoflexer. I also use Android apps like Pixlr-o-matic, Pudding Camera, Snapbucket and Photoshop Express. Instagram filters, are nice, too.

How do you edit your photos?

By err... using Photoshop? Check my Tutorials page. If it doesn't help, try using my free colors. I don't give out my personal actions and curve presets for free. Please visit my shop for more details.

Will you code me a layout/design me a blog header?

Yes but this is a paid service. Send me an e-mail and we'll work the details out. I can code both Blogger and Tumblr skins.

Will you follow me back on Blogger/Twitter?

No, I only follow blogs that I'm interested in. So unless I like your blog, I won't follow you back, sorry. But on Twitter... I usually follow fellow bloggers so yeah, I might follow you back but I can't guarantee it. To be honest, I don't think you should follow people just because you want to increase your own number of followers.

What do you work as?

I used to be a resident graphic designer of some office. I currently work as a Care specialist for an American postpaid mobile carrier. Guess which!

Do you code your own skins? What software do you use?

Yes I do. I use Notepad++, and sometimes Dreamweaver. But I prefer the first. You can download Notepad++ here.

Can I use your skins as basecodes?

Yes but always credit me, all blogskinners like me deserve that small, valuable thing. I repeat, credit me.

Can I have your old layout codes?

Check my blogskins account first, I might have submitted it already. If it's not there, give me your e-mail.

Hire Me!

Rainy Martini, Rainy Martini

You can definitely call me Rainy! I'm a 20-year-old Chinese from the Philippines. Oh gosh. I don't feel like telling you stuff about me but I have no choice because the picture is too huge and I have to fill this space lest it will look ugly. I used to love creating profiles but now I think it's kind of meh. Anyway, I've been blogging since 2008, and this blog was born on September 2011. The main purpose of this blog is to, somehow, showcase my passion despite this thing that's going on with me. Very personal. The short of it all is, I don't have my own camera yet and yes, I still run this photoblog. Perhaps I have this personal journey or maybe I'm pretending to be a fictional character who's trying to pursue her dream by doing the shit she loves. In a way, I am pursuing my dreams. Inch by inch. Maybe "inch by inch" is too little but you know what I mean. I don't blog much these days because I am v. v. busy with my v. v. stressful work. I think you oughta know that I play the piano and flute. Someday I might forget my camera shyness and post one of my videos here. Right here. In this wide open scary space called my blog. How do I fill this space ugh it's so annoying. I love custard-flavored desserts, oh no scratch that, I love ALL desserts. I love kawaii stuff. I love hiding my face. I love my boyfriend. I love flicking through lighthearted novels. I love taking photos of random things and people. Yes, I am verrrry creepy. ♥ ♥ ♥
