The unlabelled years

I've griped about this before, but what is this decade called? And the next one? Consider the appalling filler TV shows I Love The Eighties and I Love The Nineties. What's next in that series? How can this decade be mostly done with and it's still not been classified? I think I've finally made my own choices for decade names, though. This decade I shall call the 'Two Thousands'. The 's' on the end is important there. And for the next decade I shall adopt the semi-popular label the 'twenty-teens'. There. Settled. Everyone else please follow my lead. Or, do I prefer 'twenty-tens' instead? Damn.


The SnowBlog is one of the oldest publishing blogs, started in 2003, and it's been through various content management systems over the years. A 2005 techno-blunder meant we lost the early years, but the archives you're reading now go all the way back to 2005.

Many of the older posts in our blog archive suffer from link rot. Apologies if you see missing links and images: let us know if you'd like us to find any in particular.
