Those New Year's Resolutions

Now that we are reaching the halfway point of 2009's long march into 2010 (and I hope by 2010 people start saying, "Twenty ten" instead of "Two thousand ten" because, after all, if you remember back to the ol' 20th century, we didn't typically say "Nineteen hundred and ninety-nine"; we said "Nineteen ninety-nine." And rarely did we ever say, "One thousand nine hundred and ninety-nine," except on occasions requiring pomp and exaggerated formality), how are those new year's resolutions coming along?

I didn't make any new year's resolutions.

Did you?

Just asking.

Wow, I've never seen a comment where the main point was inside a bracket before...

Either way, I agree that we should pronounce 2010 as "twenty ten".

Dear Anon.,
Thanks for stopping by. Yes, I love digressions (and corrections [and rhymes]). Alas, it was parens, not brackets, as here [ ]. Just sayin'.
