OK, *now* I'm back

Finally back from my Sydney trip—was at the eResearch Australasia conference for a week, and stuck around the most beautiful city in the world for the weekend. That kind of beauty, one should only consume in moderation, lest one start to take it for granted.

And end up a Sydneysider.

So I'm finally going to get back to the natural order of things; and I may even get back to blogging. As we say in Cretan dialect, now, να βρω το σειρά μου "I'll find my series". Where "series" is another word for "order", and Cretan switches the gender of the noun to make that differentiation clear.

I've found no hits for that expression online, which shows either that there isn't as much blogging in Cretan dialect as there is in Cypriot—or that the expression is only used in my mother's village.

For a second, I thought it was a typo.

Can you please give us another example of this "gender switch"?
