check "Always on Top"
use Lucida Grande 14 (I think) pt Font to blend in
(annoyed that it's a little fuzzy, but good enough for now)
then just drag the window on top of the titlebar.
The caveat is that I only want to have 1 action showing, more and I might need to make it output in a line. I might also play around with exporting attributed text so I can the the note in there as well in a non-bold font.
