Employee Status for Sharepoint

We have recently installed Sharepoint 2010 and we'd like to include an employee status screen where employees can update their status (lunch, dr. appt., vacation, etc.). We currently use a program called Statusview which is old, but does exactly what we need it to. I'd like to integrate similar functionality within Sharepoint. I've seen a couple of ideas on list views - but they are not that great. They are a little clunky and don't have the ease of the current app that the users enjoy. Does anyone have any known cures for my ailment?

couldn't this be a simple custom list with a drop-down for status?
you could also create a calculated column for Employee Name which is equal to the built-in field Created By.

the user goes in and selects the status.  the list view shows Employee Name and Status.

That may be what I wind up doing (the list option), but I was hoping for a cooler looking solution with graphics that make it easy to tell they are out/sick/vacation etc.

You can add a link with a business connectivity service, from your user profiles which would allow you to capture the information. You would have to use some javascript to show icons etc. The alternative would be to create something in silverlight.
