Louis: "...sick to the back teeth..."
Damn I like that expression! Never heard it before. Can't say me dad ever uttered it growing up, so I don't know if it's an English thing, a regional thing, or just a thing one picks up, but darn it...I likes it!
...and it's so Louis! ;)

Here in France, it's quite common: "j'ai les dents du fond qui trempent", or "my back teeth are soaked"...
You can't fool me. I've studied my Mark Twain and I know that that really means "I have the teeth of the back who soak."
"The . . . um . . . okay, I was genetically selected for blue eyes. I know there are brown eyes, because I've observed them, but I can't do it. Okay? So . . . um . . . coz that's real genetic selection, not the nonsense Giberson and the others are talking about." - DO'L
