    Default translation!

    Hey!

    What does "levantarse" mean?

    and how do you say, "yeah, long day!" or, "no kidding" in spanish??

    Hi Jcal.
    Can you give some context, please?

    We have a "levantarse" from bed or a chair (=get up), but there are other possibilities...

    "yeah, long day!" = "Sí, ¡(Es/fue) un largo día!" / "Sí, ¡qué día largo!"

    "No kidding" = (it greatly depends on who you're talking to: among friends you have some --non-standard!-- phrases, with differences in each country; in a different context, like, for example if you're telling that to a teacher/father-in-law, you could say "no haga/s bromas" or "me está/s embromando", "me está/s tomando el pelo (~you're pulling my leg)"

    Hope it helps. Ask again if not! (Add some context!!!)
    ;-)

    Laura is right, we need context.

    Sí, menudo día tan largo.
