The Britishisms are coming!

BBC News reported yesterday that British English is invading America. Read their spot on story in full.

I was particularly surprised to find “do the washing up” (wash the dishes) and “twee” (excessively cute) to have entered the vernacular. I have never heard either of those stateside. What British English do you use most?
