: Has anyone ever heard this one... SHE/HE IS IN HER/HIS EYEHOLES, referring to being in their element or enjoying whatever they are doing.

:The first version of the phrase is "up to one's eyeholes"; but the long form of the question has "IN HER/HIS EYEHOLES." So which is the one Mick has heard?

I haven't heard either of them. Personally, I am a little squeamish about the word eyeholes. The correct terminology is palpebral apertures. I'm a little squeamish about that, too, although for a different reason.
