New Year

It occurred to me today that next year we can stop saying "thousand". I mean: all my life, we spoke of years in terms of two two-digit numbers. "Nineteen eighty", "eighteen ninety-nine", and so on. Having to say things like "two thousand nine" for the past ten years has been awkward and arduous. I'm looking forward to twenty ten.
