Take a look at "remind" in Synaptic. It is extremely powerful. You'll 
need to learn it but it shouldn't be very difficult.

In case you do not want to dill with "remind" and prefer a GUI tool, take 
a look here http://www.alarm-clock.pl.

The last is the best GNOME alarm GUI app known to me today.  It is also 
in quite active development (but by one person if I'm not wrong). 

Pay attention - there are 2 version of it. One is written in Python 
another is a complete re-write in C and thus is supposed to be better but 
it is still in beta.

An Ubuntu deb package exist for the Python version (the link is provided 
on the author's site). The C version you'll have to install from the 
source (not a big deal).
