    curious

    Which idioms or phrases can we use to say that someone is very curious and inquisitive?

    I know "Curiosity killed the cat." and I've heard: "Aren't you curious George?" although I'm not sure if it is very common.

    Thanks.

    Re: curious

    But don't use nosy parker in an American English context. We're familiar with more British and Australian terms than we used to be, but not that one.
