    I need some translation help with this?

    "с днём варения тебя хотел поелать тебе всего хорошего,до тебя не дозвониться покеда до связи брателло"

    the context behind this is it is the recipient's birthday. she was not available all day either by phone or cell phone. What gets me is this. She hates to cook, but the translation in IMTranslator and Systran both start out with a translation containing "a day of cooking". Is it possible this means "you were busy all day and I wanted to wish you everything good if you don't call. bye from your brother"

    Thanks

    Happy birthday to you. I wanted to wish you all happiness. I cannot get you on the phone. Bye. See you later, amigo.

    День варенья (a day of jam) = День рождения (birthday). It's from a Russian cartoon abt Carlson.

    I love the Carlson cartoons!
    Toto, I've a feeling we're not in Kansas anymore.

    LOL. Ok, I would never have gotten the "day of jam" thing. It might have been worse if the translation program showed that.

    I love how there is a russian word for amigo.

    Thank you so much for your help

    It's well known one like "I'll be back".

    Карлсон: Здравствуй, Малыш! Я прилетел поздравить тебя с днём варенья... то есть с днём рожденья.

    Also, there is another well known phrase: "Спокойствие, только спокойствие!"
    Я танцую пьяный на столе нума нума е нума нума нума е
    Снова счастье улыбнулось мне нума нума е нума нума нума е

    Also (my favourite): Это пустяки, дело житейское! (actually, the cases when he said that were rather unpleasant and sometimes even dangerous)

    The word amigo (амиго) is used by some people too.
    "Happy new year, happy new year
    May we all have a vision now and then
    Of a world where every neighbour is a friend"

    :?:
    That's true but actually 'день варенья' means only 'the day of birth'.
    And maybe "day of boiling" is more appropriate translation of "день варки"?
