I've been using "Son of a biscuit!" a lot at work, and was beside myself as I read through the archives and realized I probably picked it up from Gramps. Another one I use when things get really bad (especially at work) is "Fudgy Monkeys!"
The first car I bought that I liked was an 85 VW Scirocco that hadn't been taken care of. I dumped a lot of money into that car just to keep it running well, and very early on decided I should name the car Pete, so that when something happened like the shifter dropping through the floorboards to the ground or the clutch cable simultaneously snapping in 7 different places, I could yell either "for the love of Pete!" or "for Pete's sake" in case my mom or another cuss-sensitive person was in the car with me.
One I picked up from the Ask a Ninja Christmas special last year was when Santa said "Oh fiddlebottom"
I also use bollocks and bugger a lot in the company of people who don't really know much about the UK.
In high school, "snuh" was the catchall replacement amongst my little group of friends, so "what the snuh?" could quite often be heard around that locker block.
At work we've been known to use the names of particularly pain in the butt clients as curses or insults, usually heard as someone picks up the top ad in the basket and exclaims something along the lines of "Freaking Edward Jones" or "Son of a Simonsons"
Son of a stapler, scrabble-frabble and jingle-jerry are also favorites.
