I can't believe we are almost at the end of this decade and we still don't have a name for it, like the 80's or 90's.
People say "oh well it's the aughts or it's the 2000's." I call bullshit. We never decided on anything. Nothing ever became part of the common vernacular.
When we refer to this decade in the future we're going to have to refer to a specific year. Like, "I remember back in '06." We won't be able to do the always reliable, "thing's were so great in the 90's" for this decade.
What's even more disturbing is that next decade will have a similar problem. We could potentially call it the "teens" but we won't even be able to start doing that until 2013. So what does that make 2010 - 2012? Chopped liver?
I guess it doesn't matter anyway. The Mayans have already predicted that it will all end in 2012.
Then again I tried as hard as I could to convince my mom that the world was going to end in 1999.
She didn't buy it.
