Creating a super password--easy to remember and much more secure than your mother's maiden name-- is a piece of cake. Just read this article on Slate.
Basically, Farhad Manjoo suggests coming up with an easy to remember phrase, like "My Mother Says To Pick The Very Best One And You Are I T It," and then making it into an acronym: MMSTPTVB1&YAITI. No one's going to guess that.
Why haven't I thought of this before? I'm going to stop using my cat's name immediately. Thanks Manjoo, you're the man.
