What's your Gmail labels ?

I am curious to see how many labels, and based on what categories people organize their Gmail.

I know some of you might think this is a privacy issue, but for those who don't just do it for fun.

What's mine ? Here you go:

Allies
Baby Love
Documents
Dump
ESIEE
Family
France
Google Milk
iBuddies
Important
Jobs
Morocco IO
News Alerts
Notes
Projects
Registrations
Spamish
Studies
Unread
USA Florida
Web 2.0

Yeah I doubt anyone will list theirs, although I don't think it's much of a privacy issue only if you wanted to keep something private.

It's just funny to see what others are doing :-p

I definitely changed a lot of terms for privacy reasons... but these are the basic. I have 22 labels in total.

HAHA!! (privacy issues will hit ya)

No no, that label is for my wife, I know it's weird, but it's more meant to say "My baby love" or something sweet along the line,... I should probably change it, before the FBI releases a warrant for me or something, LOL.

I use labels as like tags as possible. And try to leave them to organise themselves. It doesn't really work though...
