You can embellish that by throwing in numbers and capitalization based on some formula. Maybe every 2nd, 4th, 8th and 16th letter is capitalized. Every vowel is replaced by a number, like a=1, e=2, i=3, o=4,u=5.

The password now becomes: j13M43tB4tc

The best part is that you can put a sticky on your monitor reminding you that the password is Jen and the password is still safe.
Doesn't solve the problem of multiple passwords on multiple machines. Some will get changed ever 60 days other 90 days, others once a year.
