the "naughties"...i.e., they used to say "ought 6" or "ought 8" at the beginning of the last century...so I heard someone say that we're in the "naughties." I thought it was cute. And appropriate.

It's good only in writing, though. Saying it out loud just doesn't do it.

naughties? LOL!


Oh yeah, some peple are definitely in the "naughties"...

I was thinking about it too - what DO you call it? The "double o"s? The 2000's?

I don't really call it anything...it all sounds funny. I guess I just call it "these days" or "the present"...I guess I'll just have to find a new name down the road.

I think this decade should be called something along the lines of "The Monomials", though that doesn't make ANY sense and is not convienient in ANY way.
