*A WHOLE NOTHER THING:
A selection of words from my vast vocabulary, including the ubiquitous "the," the always versatile "and," and the more obscure "incontrovertible," arranged in frequently meaningful, sometimes profound, yet often pedestrian sentences and statements, designed with one goal in mind-- that being, to communicate; keeping in mind the oft-used bromide, "Never use two words when one will do the same job as two or more words would have done, unless you just want to take up space and sound important," which is, I must concede, too often a secret objective of mine indeed. And yet, now, the secret is out.

Please, please: Twenty-ten, NOT two-thousand-ten
I need to get started now, because we're already way into using these dates even though we aren't there yet. But PLEASE, next year is 2010; 20-10; TWENTY-TEN.
It is NOT Two-thousand ten (and it certainly is NOT, as the British love to put it, "Two-thousand-and-ten").
Twenty-ten is less syllables and it's much easier to say. It's also consistent with how we've all been raised, to say 1986 (for example). Say that date out loud, and then be consistent when you say, "2010."
