Default a reminder alarm is needed

this is going to sound soooooo stupid but the one thing i forget to do every darned week it seems is remember to put the trash out for friday mornings....

I need some kind of stand alone little alarm (both audio and visual) to go **bling bling** And flash on my monitor thurdays midday and again fridays at about 115 am when i get home from work to remind me to do this. i dont want to have check my email or go online, or do anything, long as my pc is "on" no matter what i am doing online or watchin tv i want this sucker to go off and tell me to get the trash out.....

stupid huh?

you could always get winamp, get an alarm plugin, and record yourself saying "Take out the freaking trash bozo" or something like that! lol you can tell the alarm to go off every friday. it's not that great, but it's merging an audio player with an alarm... check it out, I've been using it for about a year now.
