Express It In Yiddish:

המחשבות והרעיונות ש"נמצאים" בתוך הראש הראש עסוק בשטויות או בשגעונות חולפים, חלומות מדומיינות

hobn feygelekh in kop

Yiddish is rich with expressions. In fact, sometimes the same phrase can be said in a number of different ways. I try to bring the unique ones, where it is is not obvious from the literal translation what the expression means.
