I use to love to watch the old show “Password.” I would sit in amazement while watching the more poised contestants sit on their hands while describing the word in question without giving away the word that was flashed up on the screen.
I always thought that I’d like to be a contestant on that show. Which would have made for interesting television because I cannot talk without my hands and I’m more than a little high strung.
I CANNOT BELIEVE YOU AREN’T GETTING THIS!!! WHERE DID THEY FIND YOU? THE PASSWORD IS….
and the screen would suddenly go to black as I would be carried off stage.
I’m a lot of fun on game night, too.
I get to play password nearly every time I turn on my computer. But no one will give me any clues. Early in my computer career, I simply wrote my passwords to the sites I frequented (all 3 of them) onto sticky notes, and stuck them on the wall by my computer.
Because I figured this internet business would never last.
And while the post-it notes were attractive, it was an inefficient method of keeping track of my passwords.
Then, I graduated to a little pink fairy covered spiral notebook.
Which grew and grew and grew.
Until it took me a sweet forever plus an hour to find what I needed.
Now, I know that some of these fancy computers will store your security passwords in a fancy program.
But you need a password to access them.
I rest my case.
Besides, I like to have a hard copy of everything. In case I should inadvertently blow up the entire internet. Which could happen.
Now, the point of this post, which you never thought I’d get to. I purchased a little address book, with alphabetized tabs, that I can write my passwords in according to the website.
For example, I need a password to get into coupon.com. I list it under “C”. That’s all I’m gonna tell you. Not even Jack Bauer could get a password out of me.
Mostly because if I don’t have my little black address book, I have no idea what it is.
