    10. Biggest surprise?
    Knowing that the one I was looking for was right in front of me.

    ooh, you’re attached? another personal thing known about you. 😛

  2. Black Dog is also word for depression; my sister got diagnosed with it at the start (or was it the middle?) of this term following her “attempt”.

  3. VS – I need to know, what is the “Black Dog” ??

  4. Read above; clinical depression.

  5. P.S, check out my “Dictionary” of terms; it will help.

  6. oh man, that sucks… hope she will be as okay as she can be with the black dog, if you get what i’m saying…

    and you never did say if i guessed right about no. 10…

  7. Well, almost. I’m interested in this person, you see… and the whole of work knows about it! Whooo… 🙂

  8. VS: Tell us more about this love interest! I hope your sister is doing better.

  9. ditto daddy dan! good blog fodder to know 😉

  10. We’re like mirror images! It’s, well, crazy. It’s like a sensation or an emotion; you can’t put them into words ninety-nine percent of the time! 😀 We have a habit of “reading” each other too.
