sage park avenue

I read somewhere that the most common computer password was 123456. At first glance I think, duh? That's so obvious. Or is it? How many passwords do you have? Add in phone numbers and social security numbers and kid's birthdates and mom's maiden name and where you left your keys and I can totally see 123456 as a very smart option. Just to log into this site I have to sit and think is it blah blah blah or blah blah blah blah? I've froze when asked my phone number many times. I'm pretty sure I've given the wrong address more than once. It is so much to remember. Being extra clever only confuses the situation. So using your first pets name along with the first street you lived on for your bank account login is only smart if that is also the stripper name you use regularly. ( that IS how you choose a stripper name, if you didn't know) It seems I have to add another password to something every couple months. I'm only 41. How many will I have by the time I'm 60? What about you? I don't write them down for fear that if they are found, someone could login into my Facebook account and post that I'm " looking forward to the weekend" and I might not be " looking forward to the weekend" Alright, that's pretty weak. I mean who isn't looking forward to the weekend, but you get my point. Actually, to be honest I don't write these passwords down because I believe I'll remember them and because I might be a little lazy. So what is your excuse? Or do you remember it all?

I use the same three or so on everything. Or my super secret way to keep them is in my address/phone book under a psudonym. Tricky, huh?

Good to know. In case of emergency I'll look under pseudonym. I hope you never forget the pseudonym. Yikes!

I have a system for developing passwords that is bizarre, yet specific. It works for me. I don't think I'll have to resort to my stripper name, Benji Lewiston.

You have Facebook? I'm on Facebook. What about Twitter? Do you Twitter? I Twitter. I know you use Google. I also have Google. And I met you at The Motherhood. What about Momlogic? Do you hang out there? Or The MomBloggers Club? Or how about TwitterMoms?

Yeah, you see where I'm going, right? It gets very confusing with all the logins and passwords. I used to have everything different and last year I was hacked on MySpace (I have that too) so I went around to all my little social networks and changed everything. Now they are all in unison.
