And the Password IS...

WAFFLES:  Hey BOSS!!! What's the interwebs password?

KATIE:  I don't know, Waffles. You were the last one to change it.

WAFFLES:  Oh yeah, it's something like I M AWESOME.  Oh wait, no. It's CHICKEN.  Totally chicken.



KATIE:  Totally Chicken? Or just Chicken?

WAFFLES:  No, just chicken. 

KATIE:  Upper case C? 

WAFFLES:  Not SEA CHICKEN, Boss. There's no such thing as a sea chicken. Is there?? Ok no, just CHICKEN.

KATIE:  No, Waffles, I don't mean Sea CHICKEN. I get that it's chicken. I just want to know what's upper case and what's not.

WAFFLES:  What's not what???

KATIE:  Great. Now we're locked out. We need a new password. 

WAFFLES:  I know! I know! WAFFLES. Totally WAFFLES. Ok, not totally Waffles. Just Waffles. Totally.


*heavy sigh from Katie as she tap taps W-A-F-F-L-E-S*
KATIE:  Uh yeah, it says your password is WEAK. True on so many levels. 


The Story Behind the Story:
Today Glogirly got a huge laugh out of an email exchange she had with a fellow Cat Writers Association member. Her friend sent her some login credentials for the CWA blog. (Glogirly has a guest post that will be publishing sometime this week!) The temporary password she assigned to Glogirly was WAFFLES.

Of course there was quite a protest once I got wind of this. What about KATIE? Or perhaps KatieIsBEAUTIFUL? KatieIsSMART would work too. But WAFFLES??? So Glogirly emailed her back and told her I was more than a little upset, upon which we received this prompt reply:

"Tell Katie the computer told me that password was WEAK"  *giggle* 


To which Glogirly burst into giggles and guffaws.
Do passwords make you as crazy as us?

  1. But what if there WERE sea chickens? Would they taste like chicken or tuna or somethin' in between? And would they know the password?

  9. You know Google wouldn't accept that password because it doesn't have a number, a letter, a non numeric or alpha character and hasn't ever been used on your google account before. EVER.

  12. LOL - that is a good one. Passwords do drive us crazy.. M has a document with 6 pages of sites and various passwords. She says if it ever gets lost, we'll be in real trouble. Many of those are to sites we don't visit anymore, but for every one we eliminate, we seem to add two more.

  14. Can so relate, Katie! Passwords make me and my entire family crazy. I have so many, it's hard to remember them and if I'm not really diligent and forget to update one in my iPhone, I get locked out too! I've learned how to get past the password police, tho', so I don't get hit with a WEAK assessment of my choice. I throw everything in there, like a great stew (yes, Waffles, a CHICKEN stew), and I get great feedback every time! Loved the post!

  16. Passwords are so hard to deal with! Wait, did somebuddy say sea chicken???

  17. Katie looks as discouraged as me about passwords!!!! Four cats to incorporate their names in passwords. Then they do have nicknames. I could use those and then numbers and symbols. Which birthday number to take?! Which symbol?! Argh!!

    BTW, when I saw the subject in my mail I thought you guys were doing TV shows. The password is....that show was so much fun!! I love love love Betty White! Maybe that could be your next TV show blog.

  21. That's hilarious Katie!! Oh, by the way Katie...did I ever tell you that my Mommy's favorite girl name (seriously now) is Katie and if I had a sister...her name would probably be Katie? Yes. True story. THAT'S how awesome your name is because Mommy only loves awesome names. Just sayin'.
    And yes, passwords make me and Mommy BOTH annoyed at times.
    Love, Pixel

  22. BOL! That is too funny! Yes, passwords make us SO crazy - although we're bloggers, oddly enough we are always running out of good words to use as passwords! Grrrr! Good luck choosing a new interweb (Hee, Hee!) password, one that isn't Weak!

  23. Passwords absolutely drive us crazy!!! Just on Friday I was trying to order from an online store and it would not accept the password that I know is correct, plus their emails to me to reset it wouldn't work either!!! Grrrr...
