hi,
i found this on another forum... from which I conclude it means something like "consider me as gone"

: There was a phrase "fad" a few years ago, "Color me..." Here's a explanation from the archives:

: "It was being used as long ago as 1969. From the song Calgary written by Ian and Sylvia of Great Speckled Bird;
: Color that jet plane going,
: Color me gone.

: Presumably it comes from the instructions in a children's colouring book and means to give an appropriate colour or description to something or someone...
