I still use that all the time, but then I am an old dude.
I'll intentionally say "fixin to" around Yankees sometime just to draw some confusion and mutual laughs.
Doodly-squat or diddly squat
It was teased out of me by my yankee cousin and his friends. What are you going to fix? And crap like that.
At least I wish this word wasn't used anymore. Fortunately its use is now much rarer. A 1980s-1990s corporate buzz word that was WAY OVERUSED!
Contact - in business, folks now say "reach out" to someone.
These words have just recently made a comeback around these parts:
Road Grader (still not getting enough use yet)
For years I've been saying "frisky" when describing myself or others. It can mean mischievious / rascally, a little naughty, fresh after a shower or amorous.
Recently I've found myself saying "groovy" . It can mean cool, I'm feeling groovy or I can use it in a snarky / sarcastic way.
Lately, I'm also am fond of saying: "knickers".... as in he got it in the knickers or I'd like to get into hers!
Right smart, as in how much? Right smart.
Punk - when used to mean sick or ill.
This one confused the heck out of me, when I was a young teen, feeling under the weather, and my Grandma asked if I "was feeling punk"?
I didn't know whether to answer: (i) "not really, hard rock is more my style," or (ii) "what, is my hair standing up all spikey or something?"
