If you ever had a dream (or a nightmare) involving one or several of Croatian female tennis players and thought you've lost your mind, you've come to the right place. Here you'll be understood and counselled.

Welcome and fire away! :D

So allow me be the one to start this.

The other night I had a dream involving Petra, Donna and Ana. Somehow, in this imaginary world of mine, Petra and I were something like best buds. So one time I told her that if she's ever traveling close by, she should definately stop over for some coffee and shouldn't shy away from bringing some friends too. And so she did. The two mentioned above.

And there we were, having coffee and watching tv in my living room like some grandmas. I really don't know what happened afterwards, cause I woke up soon, with a serious case of "WTF was this" in my head.

And some weeks before I dreamed of going to watch a women's tennis tournament to a nearby city, on some stadium I've never seen in my life. There I followed Donna's match and afterwards, since we're obviously best buds too, I told her to join me on the stands once she's free, so we can watch and comment on the next match, which she did. I mean, we're best buds, after all... Suffice to say I was in her player's box and all that.

So there you have it folks. If you ever wanted to publicly (well, sort of) embarrass yourself, here's your chance. It's not as bad as it looks, we all have our crazy moments, nothing to be ashamed of there...

;)

:help:

:haha:

I had a dream that I was reading the newspaper sports section, when I stumbled upon a newest WTA list. There was a Croatian player in Top10, but I can't remember her name and exact position...

I've had xxx with Dodig :sobbing:
:rolleyes:
You should have at least picked Kristijan Mesaros :lol:
Dodig is cute, but he looks like coming from a big poverty :wavey:

I do not dream about tennis. Well, it's hard to dream after vodka.

Good heavens Patsy, what've you been smokin' lately...:happy:
Too much time spent on learning Croatian with cheesy old songs :rolls: "Ej sta mi radis" and "Sve oko mene je greh" :ras: Josipa lyrics are too difficult for a beginner :sad: even those written by Alka :ras:

"Oh please... Colonia sounds like music for uneducated woman from the village without tooth, with peroxided hair and with pink skirt revealing her vulva" :zzz:
Indeed, but you can learn easily croatian with it :wavey: As Indira has nice pronunciation :wavey:
And you should come back to your "Bizuterija" :wavey:

@Patsy: you find lyrics useful for learning a language (and such a fucked up one like Croatian)? I always found it somewhat complicated, with all the figures of speech involved. Some can be particularly confusing, like many by V. Huljic, in which case not even we who are native speakers have a clue what is she talking about...anyway, good luck with that ;)

Well - as I am native speaker of a different slavic language, it's easier :) And I also have some Croats around me who help me out with declination for example (which is also not that bad). I can for example watch now interview with Josipa and understand about 30% what is she talking about :rolls: or maybe even 40 :ras: Plus I also took a citizenship test I've found in internet and got more than 50% on it (I just fckd up questions about history before independence era + questions about some famous people and some related to law, but just because i had problems with understanding them). So I can say Croatia is my third motherland :ras:
I am not a big fan of singing males, from Croatian scene I just like one song by Cetinski (23 Prosinac) and 2 songs by Mejasi. I also listen from time to time to Severina or Danijela Martinovic, but just for fun (cause they set me to a very good mood), but my real Croatian pearl is Josipa, who stands in one row with Bjork to me :)
I'm also watching Dnevnik :ras: to know who was the next bribed politician in Croatia :D And I also look for a videos of my favourite croatian athletes on youtube where they speak Croatian (Sandra Perkovic, Janica, Ana, Borna, Ivan, Goran, Marin - but never Blanka with her church bullshit :rolls: ).

Volim te Hrvatsko :kiss:

@Patsy...you sure are one nutty girl, but at least you're honest :yeah:

I won't go too much since this is kinda OT but...

- try to watch our tv as much as you can if you want to learn it well and more easily; listening to the spoken word is I think the most important aspect of language learning; for instance it can take me quite a bit to get used to the sound of native German speakers when I watch German tv or even dubbed American shows, eventhough I have no problem understanding the written format in most cases
- you can watch various programs online, there's online radio...if you can catch some of the utterly ridiculous soap-operas and get by without brain damage, it'd be a good idea, cause their pronounciation tends to be good (maybe even too good for daily use)
- if you can understand Josipa and all her linguistic fornications with pronounciation, you're doing quite good :lol:
- news are always a good idea, pronounciation is usually OK (depends on the channel, though), speech is not too fast - plus as you say, it gives you an idea on the latest bribing rates
- interviews on YT really are a nice idea, can't hurt and you can also find things like cartoons there, you just have to know the titles.

Anyway, if you'd like to discuss this further or need some assistance, hit me up with a PM ;)
