    The new year...whaddya gonna call it?

    Okay, so it's not one of the great burning controversies of our time. But the new year is here. So, I thought I'd conduct an informal survey of MiceChatters.

    Is it....Two-thousand ten?

    Or..."20-10 as in "twenty-ten"

    In this last decade, I've felt compelled to say two-thousand-whatever.

    But now it's time for 2010.

    Your thoughts?
    God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

    Re: The new year...whaddya gonna call it?

    Twenty-Ten seems to be what most are saying ... It makes sense, we had Nineteen, Eighteen, and Seventeen, etc. before that. Two Thousand seemed to be easier to say then like Twenty-Oh-Nine, so those ten years were an exception. We're now back on track saying the year as we have for hundreds of years prior.

    I meant to. I hit the wrong button, I guess, when I created the thread.

    I was even going to leave people a chance to vote for "other".

    Re: The new year...whaddya gonna call it?

    I can add one for you! What would you like it to say?

    Two thousand ten
    Twenty-ten
    Just plain '10

    Now we can all reminisce and say old timey stuff like, "I remember way back in Seven..." Maybe we should just start over like that!

    Or "ot-seven" as I heard many references to the first decade of the 20th century

    I say twenty-ten, because it seems to have a more futuristic sound to it, and just sounds better, in my opinion.

    Re: The new year...whaddya gonna call it?

    two thousand ten
    just like two thousand nine
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    Re: The new year...whaddya gonna call it?

    I like the sound of twenty-ten, but now that I'm thinking about it, I'll probably stick with two thousand ten. Gotta sneak in that place value lesson wherever I can at work!

    But you can't call it that anymore. There's a one in the ten's place now, so it doesn't work unless you want to call it 2-ought-ten. That's way too much work!
