The second sentence though...What the heck? ("There was me, that is Alex, and my three droogs, that is Pete, Georgie, and Dim, Dim being really dim, and we sat in the Korova Milkbar making up our rassoodocks what to do with the evening, a flip dark chill winter bastard though dry.")

Anna In this made-up language, droogs are members of a gang, a bit like "my three boys", the milkbar is a place to get milk (and drugs), "rassoodocks" can be translated as minds, and the last bit should be fine to understand - it's a fucking cold but dry night. :) You get used to it and it gets better.
