Would you like to be able to go back in the past ?

Un dragon d'or à qui me débarrasse des moustiques !

A golden dragon to anyone who gets rid of mosquitos.

Je sais pas si le dragon d'or est un vieux pièce de monnaie ou si tu veux dire vraiment l'animal mythologique.

I don't know whether the golden dragon is a real coin or you really mean the mythological animal.

Autant que je sache, ce n'est pas un pièce de monnaie mais c'est un certificat.

As far as I know, it's not a piece of change but a certificate.

When I'm alone and get a chance to dream, I dream that I am in your arms, I dream of whispering a declaration in your ear.

It was just after the death of my husband that I learned that, as children, we went to the same primary school.

I'd rather think: Tonight, we're eating anything you want except celery.

Mathematicians are robots that turn coffee into theorems.

Do you know how to plant cabbages, the way we do in our home?

If my aunt's cat wrote with the green pen I had bought last week, my dog would sing it a love song and cook it fish.

One of my girlfriends said she had written a letter to the countess, but she never sent it.

Without you, today's emotions would be but dead skin of the emotions long-gone. I kinda tried being lofty here, for better or worse.

Но хватит ползать на брюхе - мы уже возвратились домой

The voice of blood is the strongest, and so are the bloodlines.

Si étrange est la nuit sous les étoiles noires, si étranges les lunes tournant au ciel du soir, mais plus étrange encore est Carcosa.

The night under the black stars is so strange, the moons spinning around the sky at dusk are so strange, but yet Carcosa is stronger.
(I don't really know if I can imitate the French construction by starting sentences with "So strange..." :hmm: what do natives reckon?)

Je déteste les filles qui quittent leur mec pour un gars plus friqué, c'est d'un superficiel !

You can, it's just poetic (like in French, right?) Here's my quick attempt at a poetic translation:

So strange is the night beneath the black stars, and so strange are the moons spinning/turning in the evening sky, but stranger still is Carcosa.

I hate girls that leave their boyfriend for a guy with more money. It's so superficial!
