ところで、弁当はカレシに作ってただでかな?
tokoro de | bentou wa kareshi ni tsurutte tada de ka na
By the way, is it (really) common to make bento for boyfriends? (In Japan I mean, of course)

I've just tended to see it done a bit in Japanese media, that it's the done thing for any girl newly dating someone.

The Lent celebrations that I know of around here are those: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slavic_carnival

Otherwise I don't understand how you can celebrate something for 40 days.

У меня был парень, но он остался в Израиле когда я вернулся в Америку. Я забыл день Валентина, а я никогда не праздновал его. Я думаю, что праздники — бессмысленны, елси только я не должен работать.
U menja byl paren̦, no on ostalsja v Izraile kogda ja vernulsja v Ameriku. Ja zabyl den̦ Valentina, a ja nikogda ne prazdnoval jeǧo. Ja dumaju, čto prazdniki — bessmyslenny, jesli tol̦ko ja ne dolžen rabotaț.

.היה לי פעם חבר, אבל הוא נשאר בארץ כשחזרתי לאמריקה. שכחתי את יום ולנטיין, אבל מעולם לא חגגתי אותו. אני חושב שחגים הם בזבוז זמן אלא אם אני לא צריך לעבוד
Hayä li pa‘am ḥaver, aval hu niš'ar ba-arets kše-ḥazarti le-Ameriḳä. Šakhaḥti et Yom Ṿalentayn, aval me‘olam lo ḥagagti oto. Ani ḥošev še-ḥagim hem bizbuz zman ela im ani lo tsarikh la‘avod.

I had a boyfriend, but he stayed in Israel when I went back to America. I forgot about Valentine's Day, but I've never celebrated it. I think holidays are dumb unless I don't have to work.

J'aime vraiment lire ton swahili parce qu'il est plein de sémitismes, et des fois je vois des mots venants de l'arabe (lakini, dubu) qui je reconnais de l'hébreu (lakhen, dov).
I like reading your Swahili because it's full of semiticisms, and sometimes I see words from Arabic (lakini, dubu) that I recognize from Hebrew (lakhen, dov).

Des fois je pense que ce serait mieux si j'étais plus haut et donc plus lourd. Les bons jours, je ne mesure que 172 cm, et j'aimerais pouvoir manger comme un géant sans grossir. Il n'y a rien que j'aime faire plus que manger, et il y a toujours un tas de bonnes choses à manger...
A veces pienso que sería mejor si yo fuera más alto y pues más pesado. Mido 172 cm en un buen día pero me gustaría poder comer como un gigante sin engordar. No hay nada que me gusta más que comer, y siempre hay muchas cosas sabrosas para comer.
Sometimes I think it would be better if I were taller and consequently heavier. I'm 5'7'' at most on a good day, and I wish I could eat like a giant and not get fat. There's nothing I like doing more than eating, and there's always a ton of good things to eat...

我不知道我還不至於說那個,但是用英文的时候,「length」真的不可以指「height」。
Ich weisse nicht, dass so weit ich gehen würde, aber „length“ kann auf „height“ auf Englisch nicht wirklich beziehen.
Dwn i'm 'swn i'n mynd mor bell â hynny, ond fedr "length" ddim yn wir gyfeirio at "height" yn Saesneg.
I don't know that I'd go that far, but "length" really can't refer to "height" in English.

Ich habe auch an Penislänge gedacht. Vielleicht ist das ein Schwulending.
Smaoiníos féin ar fhad boid. B’fhéidir gur rud é a bhaineann le haeraigh.
I also thought of penis length. Maybe it's a gay thing?

Sometimes I get frustrated in German when I want to say something like "I'm taller but he's bigger than me." I usually respond by saying Ich bin größer als er [vertical hand movement] aber er ist größer als ich [expanding in all directions hand movement] and people always tell me I should say schwerer but, like, I'm not talking about weight so much as volume. If I were talking about weight, I'd say that. And I'm not talking about fat or being muscular ... just ... bigger.

And yeah, I don't think it's just a gay thing. Long is pretty specifically horizontal or for a measurement of something which is much longer in one direction than any others as long as that dimension isn't by nature the vertical dimension. (I complicated this just to make it clear that, say, a string or a snake is still long rather than tall even if it happens to be vertical at a particular point in time ... it's not inherently vertical like humans are* and trees etc.) so if you ask someone "how long are you" there's kind of only one thing that logically works for that. I mean, you could just go "Ah, non-native, they mean 'tall'," but if it comes from a native, I'd definitely assume they mean penis length.

*Yeah, I know humans lie and sit a lot too. Crashing at a friend's place once, we took off the cushions off chairs so I could sleep there and her flatmate thought three cushions was enough and my friend said "No, he's definitely four cushions long."

And I know some people say "high buildings" and "high mountains" in English, but to my idiolect it just feels wrong. To me, high is for location (distant from the ground, above not below) and tall is for vertical extent, so the plane is high, the mountain is tall, and if the plane is long and happens to stand on its nose, it is still long and not tall.

Deep is a funny word because it can be vertical extent, location or front-to-back extent!?

Nilitaka kuandika kwa Kiswahili, lakini ... sitaki kuandika hiki chote chini!
I wanted to write in Swahili, but ... I don't want to write all of that up there!
