Honestly, I'm just nervous to make something like a paper wallet. Just scared I'll be a dumbass and delete my wallet or lose access to my own coins.

You would have to really trust the bitcoin specific live cd's because they could be comprimised already.
I would trust that.
I wouldn't trust the pc I was booting from, nor the network and/or the DNS I was using.

Just being paranoid for a reason.

My anger against what is wrong in the Bitcoin community is productive:
Bitcointa.lk - Replace "Bitcointalk.org" with "Bitcointa.lk" in this url to see how this page looks like on a proper forum (Announcement Thread)
Hashfast.org - Wiki for screwed customers

I personally use BlockChain.info/wallet for my temp wallet. It allows you to take the RPC interface of the Bitcoin client and download your private keys from an existing temp wallet into it. Only downside is if you forget your alias or identifier or (even worse) your password to it. BlockChain doesn't store your password so if you lose it, you're screwed. But hopefully you wouldn't forget it!

Here's what I've done.

I'm using a mac. I have created an 128bit AES encrypted dmg file of 4Gb. I've put inside all my bitcoin folder and symlinked it to my bitcoin app folder into 'Applications'.

Everytime I need to do a transaction, I mount the dmg and running the bitcoin-bt app from the encrypted folder. I know this can be a bit slow at times; but I don't mind. As an extra measure I've also encrypted my wallet.dat file, just in case.

Cheers.
