If ONLY I knew how to call the year. Is it Twenty-Ten? Two thousand ten? Two thousand AND ten? Just "Ten"? Or is it as my students would say: "Two-zero-one-zero"?
I remember when we hit Y2K (blech, I hated that it was called that) and the rest of the world panicked over what would happen to computer systems, bank records, and databases all around the world. Meanwhile, I was pondering what Conan O'Brien would do with his "In the year 2000" sketch, which I loved so much.
That was TEN YEARS AGO. Well, for old time's sake, enjoy this little video of Conan and a much younger but equally deadpan David Duchovny for one of the last "In the year 2000" sketches (they've since moved onto the year 3000... and into Jay Leno's time slot). And get back at me about how you're calling the next ten years.
