Twenty-Ten

I wonder how long it'll take for everyone to say "twenty-ten" as opposed to "two-thousand ten" when referring to next year.  It seems that right now it's about half and half.  
I actually had this conversation with my mother the other day.  Hey, it was something to talk about.  And since it's been on my mind...

I know that everyone will convert at some point.  "Twenty-ten" has three syllables while "two-thousand ten" has four.  One syllable difference, sure, but we'll always go for the shorter, won't we?

I wonder if it's a hundredth monkey thing.  Or will there still be holdouts into 2011.  It's something to watch.
