    I know what a fortnight is, but just from books. I don't think any region of the country uses that term.

    Yeah Scarlett, I think they may be related.
    Chicken fried steak is very common in the South, but I am turned off when they put that yucky gravy that looks like paste on the steak.

    one of my favorite Chicago area phrases;

    "forgettaboutit"

    "over by there (pronounced "dere") - as in "Hey does anybody know where Johnny is?" - "Yeah he went to the store over by dere"

    Living in GA, I definitely am familiar with chicken fried steak. Can't say that I have an exact understanding of how the chicken is involved with the process, but whatever...

    "Bless his/her heart" is a great saying, because you can say something as derogatory as you want as long as you follow it up with that.

    I have a friend who is in her sixties and has lived here all of her life. She frequently uses the phrase, "a$$ over teacup" which cracks me up every time.

    Example: "That boy is a plum fool, bless his heart. He was running around a$$ over teacup all afternoon and didn't finish one dang thing!"
    Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the universe.

    I like in the San Francisco Bay Area and we say "hella" to mean "very," as in "that's hella cool." I think this is becoming more widespread, though, thanks to Gwen Stefani.
