"You go from dream to dream inside me. You have passage to my last shabby corner, and there, among the debris, you’ve found life. I’m no longer sure which of all the words, images, dreams or ghosts are ‘yours’ and which are ‘mine.’ It’s past sorting out."
— Thomas Pynchon, Gravity’s Rainbow
Anonymous: Hello,i saw that in the "list of words to know #10",you wrote a serbian word "doček". I would like to add also, that doček can be used in "doček nove godine" or waiting for new year/xmas,or some other upcoming event. It mostly isn't used in a negative connotation,for that we rather use the word "sačekuša"(sachekusha) which is usually connected to a gang amubushing someone with an intention of beating them or intimidating them. (I was really pleasantly surprised when I saw a Serbian word here ^^)
oh thanks for the info! glad to pleasantly surprise you :_)
