I think you are being way too complicated.  Just put your admin page at
something like www.mysite.com/h7Swu72fFqdk and add that to your
bookmarks.  No one is going to accidentally type that in.  In fact, I
often use that in lieu of actual password protection when convenience
is more important than high security.
