I was born in Ohio but spent much of my life in Kentucky, so I have that southern twang going with my accent. Especially if I'm tired or comfortable with the company I'm in.

So some things I'll say is...

"Y'all git upstairs an go play" (talking to my kids)
or
"Y'all are soundn like uh herd o elephants up their. Knock it off."

Sorry, but I believe this is Australian. The Aborigines use dogs to keep warm at night, and you quite correctly stated, a cold night is a three dog night.

We would "put another dog on the bed." And, in our house, there were three dogs, so it would be a "three-dog night." As is often the case, sayings can appear in more than one area.

There's lots of folks who use dogs to stay warm. I'm sure youve heard of the American group Three Dog Night .

My mom uses the expression "built like a brick sh*t house"

Which means that someone has a very nice body or "build", because an outhouse built from brick is a very well built one indeed.

Oh these are so very funny! I had some more of these in the other journals somewhere. I must locate those, also.

"Three sheets to the wind" means one is very drunken.

"Sh#t hit the fan." That is disgusting and leaves the large mess!

I am writing these into my journal!

Your friend,

Half nine is just a shortened version of half past nine . We use " a quarter to 3 " as well . A lot of the sayings we all have are the same all over we just tailor them to our own countries really :-)

We say **** hit the fan all the time. It means that there's a lot of drama. A seemingly normal day went bad quickly.

Or you just dump the barrel and let the water spill out. You've heard the term "a fish out of water." They stop moving after several minutes and are ready to clean or fillet.
