A calendar with the style and function of a hotbar, horizontally laid out. It has two arrows and a sphere between the two arrows, on the outmost left side. The arrow facing up takes you to the previous line in the calendar while the arrow facing down takes you to the next line. The sphere brings up the current week. Each day would be a sphere, with the Date number at the bottom right and the Day specified at the top left. There would be 7 spheres on this hotbar indicating the seven days of the week. The previous and next line of the calendar would not be visible. At the very end of the hotbar to the top right, it would have the Month and the option of the year right next to it.
It would have a mouse over option, showing a brief description of the contents within the date/event.
