shrug-l: System Variable in Annotation

Does anyone here know how you can include a system variable, such as the file
name or today's date, last modified date, etc. in a layout annotation (I keep
forgetting to update the "Revised:" dates on my ?/&@?$!**@%*^ printed maps).
I've pretty well mastered modifying labels using Visual Basic scripts, but
the same techniques don't appear to work on text annotations.  I tried using
VB scripts, but all the script delineators I tried printed out literally
(e.g., single quotes, double quotes, left & right brackets, etc.).
