My semi-colon key is the first to go on my keyboard, but that's because I'm a programmer.

String s = "ABC";
if (a < 3) {

In English I much prefer the dash over the semi-colon -- I find it more aesthetically pleasing; however, alas, I think it's grammatically wrong. My excuse is that I'm a math major.

I overuse the semicolon. I've become a fan of the dash in recent years; it makes for a great parenthetical.
