HAH!! Yep - that is about all I use for "logical" modeling too!

I have used Embarcadero's ERStudio for probably a dozen years now. Incredible capabilities, and if you purchase a SQL Server only license it is very reasonably priced for the functionality it brings to the table (pun intended).

Be aware that the SQL Server database diagram is a live representation of the database. If you drop a table from the diagram it is dropped from the database, so use this tool with care. It can be safer to stick with the cocktail napkins and beer coasters, plus using a phone camera to capture significant versions.
