Question of the Day

So we’re counting down the last days of 2009 and starting a new decade (I know; the decade changes when it becomes 2011 since we all decided in 1999 that the 21st Century didn’t begin until 2001). Anyway, here’s a rather off-beat thing that I’ve not really thought about during the last ten years, but it might change next week:

Do you say the year is “Two thousand-nine” or “Twenty-oh-nine” and will you say “Two thousand-ten” or “Twenty-ten”?

I have said “Two thousand-[whatever]” for the last whatever and will keep on that track. “Twenty-oh=[whatever]” is just too awkward for me.
