I’ve come up with a system for remembering all the different passwords I have. I have a Word document called “passwords” that lists all of them and what programs or websites they are for. If you decide to do this, remember to keep the document safe from prying eyes by password protecting it.

Just don’t use the password “password”, OK?

On the hunt for clean underwear…

I have an excuse.

Three of them actually.

First, I am of the male sex, which is really all the excuse I need.

Add to that, I am single. That gets me bonus points in the excuse department.

Finally, I live alone.

“Nuff said. I have all the excuses I need to explain my inability to find clean underwear. I don’t need any help in that department
