Sure am. Where is the problem?

What is "in over my head"? My translator [1] gives me:

to be in over your head with debt
to be head over heels in love
That's over my head
He's head over heels in love
She's head over heels in love

I suspect that you are in love with me. You know we non-English native 
speakers sometimes do have a hard time.

Cool. Where do we discuss? I could sure get them off list but it would 
make sense to move the discussion to one of the many new mailing lists 
if only to be able to say  afterwards that it was all discussed in 
public. Need another smiley to believe that I am sure serious? Here we 
go :-)

Best, Arnulf.
