I am so happy to be participating at TEDActive 2013 for the first time this month! (http://conferences.ted.com/TEDActive2013) Wow! One of my fellow TEDActivists, Tereza Nemessanyi, had a great idea to assemble an a capella choir and sing a song or two for all of the TEDActivators there. Well, it turns out that Tereza is VERY POPULAR! She would have been the girl in high school voted as Ms. Congeniality AND most likely to succeed! So, she has now been asked to participate in several TEDActive projects and has asked me to organize what I have dubbed “The TEDAcapella Choir.” Ok, I did star in Broadway musicals for 15 years, but I have never organized or directed an a capella choir before! I started looking for possible songs to sing and then this song popped out of me a couple of days ago. Now the choir members have one more song to vote on. 🙂

Enjoy! And if you too are a grateful TEDAholic, I’ve included the lyrics below, so you can sing along! Enjoy! :)I am so happy to be participating at TEDActive 2013 for the first time this month!

Grateful TEDAholic by Robin Boudreau Palmer –
When I’ve got the blues
‘Don’t drown myself in booze
Take in a talk instead
With TED

When I feel forlorn
I don’t turn to porn
I snuggle up instead
With TED

I’m a grateful TEDAholic
I’m addicted all the way
Flew to TED from Swaziland
And now I’m here to stay

I’m a grateful TEDAholic
So glad I’m not alone
All your smiling faces tell me
That I finally am home

And TED’s family is special – like Active, Ed and Global
Out of all of my ex’s, I love TEDx the best! (spoken -“Way!”)

When I’m running scared,
Lost and unprepared
I stop and clear my head
With TED

When I’m longing for a thrill
‘Stead of crashing down a hill
I know I’ll be elated
With TED

I’m a grateful TEDAholic
I’m addicted all the way
Flew to TED from Swaziland
And now I’m here to stay

I’m a grateful TEDAholic
So glad I’m not alone
All your smiling faces tell me
That I finally am home
All your smiling faces tell me
That I’ve finally come home.
