this is what the book tells you to look for...

this is what i got...
is it the lil' dimple of a notch on the flywheel to the left of the bolt... or is the purely obvious diamond shaped notch that i'm suppose to line up?!?!?!??!!?!?
why couldn't things be blatantly obvious

No, you should still be good. the pressure plate bolts to the crank only one way,and the flywheel only bolts on one way, as well.

You should be aligning the dimple that is just left of the bolt. Not the notch.
