Aloha Friday: New Year's Edition

writing prompts, blogging prompts

Here is how Aloha Friday works from Kailani's blog An Island Life:

In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too. Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response.

It's New Year's Day 2010! I'd like to wish everyone a Happy New Year and hope that 2010 will bring wonderful surprises.

I've heard some debate about how to pronounce the new year. I think I like saying "Twenty Ten" more than "Two Thousand and Ten." It's quicker and just sounds better to me.

My Question This Week: How are you going to pronounce the new year? Twenty-ten? Or Two Thousand and Ten?

  1. i have been saying "twenty-ten" and most folks are correcting me, but i think it's cool. i'm really excited to say "twenty-twenty". have a wonderful new year and take care. aloha!

  2. Hadn't thought about it. I think 2,010 ... but I've just been writing 2010, or '10! ;)

  3. Haha! I was going to make this my question because we all had a debate last night about it! I say twenty ten. My hubby can't stand that in car world (he runs an autobody) the dealerships are saying 'oh ten' um so wrong!

    Ps I'm hoping for a baby too!

  4. I was wondering about that myself - I've been told the official way is twenty-ten now that you're out of the aughts (or naughts...)

  5. have not really given it any thought...
    now that you mention it...
    Not sure yet

  6. Hadn't thought about it before reading your question, but now that I have....

    Two Thousand Ten, (no "and")

  7. I am definitely a twenty-ten girl. Here's hoping yours (however you pronounce it) is wonderful!

    Happy New Year.

  8. I really want to pronounce it two-thousand-ten, but I know everyone else will say twenty-ten so I'll probably conform.

  9. Twenty ten seems to be shorter to say. Yep, I believe that's the correct way. I'm your newest follower. Hope you can find time to follow me.

  10. Hi there! Thanks for the comments on my blog. Just wanted to let you know that I am adding your blog button to my sidebar and just added you as a friend on MBC! :)

  11. Twenty ten for sure!
