My Own Private Idaho.

This is a phrase taken directly from the 1980 dance pop song, "Your Own Private Idaho" by the outrageously awesome band, the B-52's.

It means "living inside an Idaho potato", or a very small space. Metaphorically, it refers to someone who is not paying attention because he is daydreaming, or under the influence, or otherwise wrapped up within his own very narrow sphere of interest or frame of reference.
