Happy New Year!

Oh hey — it’s a new year! And I think it’s a new decade too — or do we have to wait until 2011 for that? I can never keep that sort of thing straight. Anyway, hope you’re all partying safely, or if not, if you at least remembered your body armor, knee pads, condoms, and have mapped out a quick getaway route in case someone calls the cops.

Oh and yeah — guess what’s not here? That’s right: a message telling you to move on to the next blog I’ve set up. That’s because I’m not setting up any more new blogs every year like I used to. I’m staying right here.

    New decade or not, it’s finally no longer awkward to try to say the year the way we used to back in the 1900s.

    “Twenty-oh-nine” just didn’t trip off the tongue properly, but “twenty-ten” sort of does.

    “Twenty-eleven” will be kind of fun, actually.

    I’m looking forward to 2010 because 2009 sucked for us. However, I’m not looking forward to 2011 and millions of Spinal Tap “This one goes to Eleven” jokes.

    The only sure thing about 2011 is that people will agree that it’s indeed a new decade, regardless of whether your numbering system starts at “0″ or “1″.

    Well, there will be death and taxes as well. But that’s another story.

    Happy New Year!!

    2011 is the actual first year of the new decade but only math geeks care about that. For everyone else the new decade is here.

    Nearly everyone on TV – news anchors, car commercials and so forth – have been saying “two thousand ten” and it was starting to get on my nerves but today I finally heard “twenty ten” in a furniture store commercial so maybe it will catch on eventually.
