"Seuraavana päivänä meillä kaikilla oli kauhea krapula."

Hmm, google translate knows this. Krapula for hangover? New one to me.


I'm just excited that I was able to understand that sentence except for the last word, but you'd given us that one.


The word krapula always reminds me of this song here. Unfortunately I couldn't find any other video, but I think you'll get the idea.


Haha, I am guessing that was definitely during Juhannus >_<

I was actually going to say that I learnt "Krapula" through this song: Unelmia ja Toimistohommia - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rFEpNctW28M
I think this song is probably one of the best reasons not to get a hangover on a Monday morning. (user discretion pertaining lyrics).

ps. I should stop visiting this thread, my wanderlust is tingling.

Actually not. It's says boozemly in the title, that's crawling in a park and drinking during the Assembly.
But I've been singing the song on some student's parties. You can find it in several student song books.

This is pretty typical for the site. Known words, and then one weird word that you don't know. With Finnish, this feels close to my sweet spot for something that's not too hard, not too difficult. Even with the words I do know, I'm often suprised at what case is being used. Due to the algorithm they used, often the problem itself is trivial, but there are enough non-easy ones to keep it interesting.

Krapula - presumably related to the English word "crapulous" (i.e. from a common source)??

I've never heard 'crapulous' in the USA, maybe it's a UK thing? Dictionary does know it, good a theory as any.

Guys! Guys! Guess who opened and read something in Assimil Finnisch today!! It was me! ME!

So, this probably means that I'm really and truly back on the pain train.

Hey, I'm going to be one of the cool kids now - I've been provided with a copy of Le Finnois avec peine, so I'm getting on board. :D

Yay! We've snared another one! I knew all those tennis balls I'd tossed around would do the trick.

Congrats, Elenia. I find Assimil to be more painful than advertised, but as I near the end of the passive wave, I find something is slowly starting to click into place at last. I had the same experience using Assimil for German. It didn't make much sense until the end.
