I am honored to be invited to be a participant in the 2013 TEDMED "Great Challenges Day" and I am striving to create 30 posts in 30 days for WEGO Health's Health Activist Writer's Month Challenge. I feel like a true #Gladiator this month. I am #ScandalObsessed I admit it. The best "virtual" medicine for me often comes in the form of a tweet or retweet from a cast member.
Tonight after a busy day of finalizing my TEDMED plans, I put "California Years" (a Jill Sobule CD.) on full blast and somehow made it to Slimmons Studio where I worked out with Richard Simmons in Beverly Hills. Happily exhausted, I grabbed a greek yogurt for dinner and waited patiently (aka "watched the rerun of a Grey's Anatomy episode") for the repeat of "Scandal" to start.
I know why I am going to TEDMED and "Great Challenges Day" but it will be fun to explore my favorite scandalous locations while I'm enjoying our Capitol City. I can't wait to toast to TEDMED and "Great Challenges" once I'm in the beltway. But tonight, instead of writing this post, I was caught up on my Twitter timeline, while creating the vision for the "Men of Scandal" calendar... that's when I realized I would want and covet more than one calendar. The Men of Scandal calendar would be where I kept my workout and fitness schedule. The Scandal Datebook with tips by @scandalmakeup would become my new desk calendar (apologies to Moleskine!) and the Lady Fixers "Girl Gladiators" calendar would be where I note and schedule all of my social media chat and health care advocacy activities. I know Shonda Rhimes may be too busy writing and producing my obsession to design the calendars I desire... but ABC Marketing should get on this.
