Automator and iCal on Mac

I just found a new way to quickly and efficiently add iCal calendar events on a Mac. First open automator and choose custom. Then under library, choose New iCal events. Drag it over to the right and select under options "show this action when automator runs." Now save it under save as.. as an application and run it whenever you want. Combine this with the great app Quicksilver and you are just a keyboard shortcut away from creating iCal events.
