    Bonkers is a personal favourite, right now at least. Nuts is good too.

    Sometimes I swear you make words up. If it wasn't for 'hard evidence', I'd never believe it.:tongue:

    A few days ago I received a PM from someone who referred to me as "demented". Actually, the exact wording was that I had a "demented mindset". :rolleyes: I pondered a bit as I had never been called that before, and then I looked it up. I never knew it had that many meanings.


    Never heard that one before. I like it. :cool:

    That's a good one. Never heard it before and I love cornbread. :smile:

    I've heard that.

    Point to the head and say, Lots of windows ... no light.
    (Actually, I'm translating an expression I heard in France, but I think I've since heard it in English, too.)

    After reading this thread yesterday I got the evening paper and the word 'doolally', or a play on it, was plastered accross the front page. It was in reference to Amy Winehouse though....:smile:

    His elevator doesn't reach the top floor.

    He's lost his marbles.

    He is a few bricks shy of a load.
