It did just take 10 weeks... we've had them for a couple months. We went in late January and applied for ours and got them in early April. Before the mad rush of millions so the 10 weeks was a fair estimate. Today... maybe 3 - 4 months is closer.
Although we don't have gender based definite articles and modifiers, we do randomly assign genders to some nouns. As an example, the U.S. is referred to as a female (despite Uncle Sam).
We also refer to our cars, military ships, planes and many other items as she or her.
