It's really 2009, and I know it.

I don't know what's different this year, but for the first time ever, I've been getting the year right every time I've written the date. Last year, it took me a week or two to stop writing "2007" and start writing "2008"; this year, from day one, I haven't had to think about writing the correct date. It comes out as "2009", without any mental effort on my part.

I'm not sure why this is. I know I'm not smarter than I was this time last year. If I had to guess, I think it's that I had been so ready for 2008 to end, that the transition between years seemed more natural....
