Re: 2010

Didn't even think of Ten, but you're right I should have added it.

I don't say 1960 when someone asks me what year I was born, I say 60.

Re: 2010

I'll probably say twentyten BUT I'm hoping, however it is referred to, that it is better than last year.

Re: 2010

I like how 20-10 sounds.. I'll probably use that phrase.

Re: 2010

So the vote at the dogpark this morning was Twenty Ten

A point was made that we usually don't use just the last two digits until a year has passed.

Re: 2010

During the last century I always said nineteen blah blah when saying the entire year. So twenty blah blah just seems more natural to me than saying two-thousand blah blah.

Re: 2010

i never thought of this until someone brought it up on NYE... naturally, i'd been saying 'two thousand ten'.

now that i'm actually thinking about it "o ten" doesn't hurt

Re: 2010

There was an article in the S.F. Chronicle on this yesterday.

'Twenty ten' or 'two thousand ten'?

Re: 2010

I go for whatever is faster...20-10 is quicker to say than two-thousand and ten.
