remember.el automatically does this for you. You might want to read
its code, or just use it wholesale. In fact, it even pops up a nice
window for you...

Seriously, if all you want to do is insert a timestamp, check it
out. It's pretty cool, and you can easily make the functions record
more information. I'd love to be able to use that in a wearable
computing setup that keeps track of where I am and who I talk to! <laugh>
(ooooh, bbdb to the rescue...)

Note to self: hack remember.el to work with planner.el so that it adds
notes to the end of the day's planner... That'd be, like, tres cool.
