I normally translate "be bored" as {Dal ghu'} with a possessive on the

Dal ghu'wIj     "I'm bored."
Dal ghu'lIj     "You're bored."

...and you get the idea. Some other phrases for this construction could be:

Daj ghu'wIj     "I'm interested." (simply opposite of bored)
Qob ghu'Daj     "He's/She's in danger."
tlhaQ ghu'chaj     "They are embarrased." (?)

That last one I'm not so sure about. It could be an idiom, so who knows? But
this kind of construction is quasi-useful if you know what words to use in

DalHa'jaj ghu'raj

Literally: "May your (pl) situations be non-boring."
Stylistically: "Have fun!"
