    Re: IDIOMS

    "dying to try" is used to express a strong or passionate interest in doing or attempting to do something.
    "bitten off" is difficult to determine meaning out of context but could be part of an expression such as "He has bitten off more than he can chew", meaning he has attempted to do something that is beyond his capabilities.
