Favorite Podcast Phrases - Done and Dusted

As I listen to a fair amount of Warhammer Fantasy Podcasts (ok I listen to all of them) I've grown to love the expressions that some of the guys are using.  I figured I would share some of my favorites with definitions/origins provided by The Phrase Finder.
DONE AND DUSTED:  Refers to something being complete or finished.  When documents were signed in times past using pens dipped in ink, drying time could be considerable as the application of the ink varied so much. To speed things up an absorbent dust was sprinkled on the fresh writing, left momentarily, and then tipped off the sheet, allowing the document to be rolled or folded there and then, and carried off. Thus, a deal was considered finalized when it was "done and dusted".  
Commonly used by the Bad Dice Podcast boys to indicate that a project (model/army), episode or discussion is complete or concluded.
