I have a couple of tasks I clock in regularly from anywhere using f9-o
and f9-m (for organization and mail).  These clock in the task based on

All of my remember buffers start the clock using the remember hooks.  I
  - start remember
  - clock in via hook
  - enter stuff
  - C-c C-c
  - clock out via hook

This remember task is now in the list.  I have F11 bound to functions to
make clocking in and visiting clocked items easy.
