    I say twenty eleven. Seems simpler than Two Thousand Eleven.

    @beekiss2: I see her logic though from 2000-2009 I always referred to the year as “two thousand ____” because saying “twenty-O-four” or whatever sounded weird. Since 2010 I’ve referred to it as “twenty ____”. Though, if someone were to ask me what year I graduated in, I always say “O-four”.

    ETA: Wow, that was a long winded explanation that probably didn’t make any sense. =)

    I said ‘twenty ten’ too, so I’m definitely sticking with the easier route :).

    20-11 sounds douche-y to me for some reason.

    Twenty eleven.  So much easier to say plus the other makes me think of 2,000.11.

    I have never heard it called “twenty-anything” so that sounds strange to me. Most folks call it two thousand something.

    I hadn’t put much thought into it. I think I mostly said two-thousand-ten but i guess twenty-eleven makes sense. Maybe I’ll make the switch 🙂

    Two thousand eleven.  I didn’t mind twenty ten, but I just don’t like how the two “ee” sounds in “twentee eeleven” sound together.

    1642 = sixteen forty-two

    1987 = nineteen eighty-seven

    1999 = nineteen ninety-nine

    Seeing a pattern? Twenty eleven is the proper way to say it.
