I have a text file with all my passwords to my offshores, encrypted with the name of my first girlfriend. Hope this helps.

If your ex girlfriend's name is published anywhere in a manner connected to you, either published by you, or by her, or even maybe by 3rd parties, I'm sure it does.

From what I've read, meaningful passwords and patterned password schemes are like gold to the people who prey on other people.  You probably ought to get one of those programs that generate random sequence passwords.  Is it foolproof? Nope, but its probably way better than what you've got.
