But what did we call the last ten years?!

Happy New Year everybody!  Today is the first day of 2010.  The first day of a new decade.  The first day of what will most likely be called, in some form or another, “the teens.”

But what did we call the last ten years?  Did we ever land of a name for that? The “O’s”?  The “early 2000’s”?

I’ll happily move on to the next decade but I’d love it if someone could clear that up for me.

  1. I think it was unofficially “the noughties”. Don’t know what this decade can be though. I’m thinking of just calling it “the teens”…

  2. I would like to think we can call this decade the teens, but what about 2010, 2011.. until we get to 2013? and the last decade…not going to worry about it anymore

  3. As with most unsettled issues, I find avoidance is the best course of action. For the past 10 years I’ve been saying “this decade,” and for the next 10 I’ll probably say “last decade.” After that I’ll rely on, um, 2020 hindsight.

    I do like Paula’s suggestion though.
