Is there a shortcut key for strikethrough?
Ctrl+S is used for Save. Ctrl+5 is used for Strikethrough. Why Ctrl+5? When you use hashmarks to count |||| is 4, strike through to mean 5.

Also of use may be the today function.
=today()
in a cell will always returns today's date.

So, as suggested, you could just put the formula in a cell and custom format it or use it in Lenze's formula directly:
=text(today(),"dddd")
