Express your Thoughts on Your Today Screen with Text Widget for Android
It is always surprising how the simplest of ideas can actually become a reality when given the right tools. XDA member tampiss has just released a very basic, yet never thought of widget for Android.

You can find more information in the application thread.

In fact, I'd say that without Android I wouldn't have chosen...
