Print a monthly calendar with today's date highlighted

cal | grep -E --color "\b`date +%e`\b|$"
The cal command is handy, but sometimes you want to quickly see today's date highlighted. That's why I came up with this quick command. Much like http://www.commandlinefu.com/commands/view/1342/show-this-months-calendar-with-todays-date-highlighted but cleaner and more succinct.
