Britpick: The phrase 'knocked up'. Google tells me it is of American origin, but it has obviously traversed continents. Just wondering if it's a phrase that is commonly used in England or not? If not, is there more common slang for 'got herself pregnant', or would you just say 'got herself pregnant?'

Also: When you guys are writing about a character (who is not a Deatheater) thinking about Voldemort, what do you call him? I always hate this, because the idea of actually referring to a person, in your thoughts, as 'You Know Who' is bloody ridiculous, but only DEs (and Snape, and anyone else I can feasibly force to do it) call him the Dark Lord, and only Harry and Dumbledore call him by his name, so. It just sounds SO STUPID, though. How do you guys get around that?
