: : : : I met a guy recently and saw his band. I emailed him and told him I thought they were good. He replied thanking me for the compliments. He ended with this phrase: "Thanks to the moon." Any thoughts?
: : : He's a lunatic?
: : You've met Ozzy!
: It sounds like he was profusely thanking you. He was thanking you again, and again, all the way to the moon. (Along the lines of a "thousand pardons" as Hercule Poirot would say).
Like praising someone "to the skies."
