Sending myself a message

I'm trying to send notes from my iDevice to my Mac, and I'm wondering if such software exists. I don't mean 'Note'-notes.

I have a synced note system in place already and I also use Pastebot. These are not the things I'm looking for. Let me describe the situation:
I'm in bed, reading my RSS-feed on my iPhone, as I like to do. Suddenly I see a post about some software or website I'm interested in, like this: http://a.wholelottanothing.org/2012/11/listening-to-podcasts-piecemeal-huffduffer-instacast.html. Wow, I think to myself, I have to check that out. I have to send myself that link so that I can get to it when I'm behind my main computer. I mustn't forget!
This is where my itch comes in. I can create a todo for myself (too much trouble) or send myself an email (this works best, but I don't like sending myself emails). Ideally what I'd like is to send my Mac a message from my iPhone (or a number of messages), so that it/they sit(s) there waiting for me when I finally get to my workstation.
Synced notes (simplenote/nvalt) are not immediate enough. If I do it that way, I'll find the note at one point, buried between the others, and I'll go 'oh yeah, that's that post I was interested in three months ago'. What I like about the email solution is that it sits there waiting patiently, but that I'm sure to see it when I start my day behind the computer.
So... anyone know of a nice software solution?
