    All the time. All of it.

    I really have to watch out so I don't genderize* things when I talk. I've done called trees "he", the sun "she"... quite often, really.


    *Shuddup, firefox, that's a word now.

    Interestingly, since I do all my writing in English, it also seeps back into my German. "Right?" or "Okay?" at the end of sentences is one. "Well..." as a filler word. "Nonsense", if I don't believe something.

    So make sure your ole' knife is sharp, me lad,
    And make sure your powder is dry,
    For the world is awash with fools, blood and gold,
    And all men are just waiting to die.
