If you like how your appointments are shown, you can use the appt display
mechanism, by setting org-show-notification-handler to something like this:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
(defun my-org-show-notification-handler (notification)
  (funcall appt-disp-window-function "0" (current-time-string) notification))

(setq org-show-notification-handler (function my-org-show-notification-handler))
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---
