Is "scatty" the same as "scatterbrained"? I ask because I'm pretty sure you're not calling yourself animal poop or a doo-wop-type jazz singer. But not totally sure.

Whoa...had better rephrase that clearly!

And yep: short for scatterbrained. Thanks for pointing it out.

LOL re translation of 'scatty'!
