Bug Description

Using boldness to indicate the current date doesn't allow it to stand out from the other dates.

As seen in the screenshot, note this is actually more difficult in "real" view as you are looking at a screen with 1000+ x 1000+ pixels.

A different colour or a round red circle around the current date would be better.

Here is a simple diff to color the current day (using the same blue used for indicators). I happen to think, even on a 1400x1050 screen, this current version works quite well and makes it very simple to spot the current day where as just using bold it is near to impossible.

So the only issue with this is that we dont use a static blue for the
indicator, it's pulled from your system theme, the clock should probably do
the same.
