I thought I had invented a new word – Millicentury. I was wrong:
http://time.wikia.com/wiki/MillicenturyI like the idea. A century is a hundred years, and dividing that by a
thousand gives a tenth of a year. A year is 365 days (close enough,
anyway), so a tenth of that is 36.5 days. Call it five weeks, just
over a month.

“Steve, how long will it take you to finish that project?” “About a
millicentury.”

“How often do you get paid?” “Around a demi-millicentury, maybe a little less.”

“Wow – this is a six-Sunday millicentury!”

I still like the term, even if I didn’t invent it first.
