New Year’s Eve, Adieu to the Aughts

We still don’t really know what to call the decade that just happened (I vote for the “aughts”, even though the term is archaic; I like archaic terms), but whatever you call it, it’s over tonight.

Or, if you prefer, it ends one year from tonight.  (That, of course, is because the Roman calendar which we use has no year zero, suggesting  a zero year properly belongs to the decade prior.)  On the other hand, that’s not the popular usage, so make of that what you will.

At any rate, I wish you a Happy New Year tonight, and a year full of reading enjoyment and productive, happy writing.
