I do the same thing. With two improvements...
(1) I have a web form where I can enter a new alias. That is
really easy to access from a smart phone.
(2) I have a script that creates an "email alias of the day"
in the format of "somestringMMDD at mydomain.com". If I am
caught off-guard or away from the network, I use that address.
If the alias has not been modified in a week, it gets deleted
automatically. If it has been updated from my web form, the
alias stays. Typically, after the fact, I will go to the web
form and write a note about who "mail0831 at mydomain.com" is
for. That change is enough to tell my script not to delete it.
