"The proper behavior all through the holiday season is to be drunk. This drunkenness culminates on New Year's Eve, when you get so drunk you kiss the person you're married to."
Happy Holidays From Eden Lit
We recognize that the Holiday Season is a stressful time for just about everyone. Sure, it's also a loving and wonderful time for the vast majority of folks but we believe that this time of year we should have fun!
In this spirit of giving we will be offering some really fun activities in lieu of "business as normal". We'll get back to our usual in the new year.
In place of the #Eden Lit Lessons we will be having #Eden Lit Games! We are kicking it off with a great game of "Let's Pretend"! Let's pretend that we each have $1,000 dollars to spend on sex toys, sex furniture, or adding a room to your home for sex. What would you buy, or build? Who would you share it with? Draw us a diagram or just tell us all about it. C'mon DISH, people! Inquiring minds want to know! Here's the forum: Let's Pretend!
We'll follow with some other fun games through out the season along with EdenFantasys and their amazing line up. Have you checked out the Holiday line up this year for EF? Here, take a look: Eden's Upcoming Holiday Events. Holy crap is there a whole bunch of parties, contests and other fun stuff going on.
Our meeting this month has been moved forward a week and will be held on Tuesday December 4, 2012 at 3 pm. We want all of you to have as much time as you can have to write during this busy time. We're gonna party and play a few games. We don't want to be serious and why should we? Let's have a great time and create some memories, shall we?
Happy Holidays from Eden Lit and may this year end and the new one be the best year of your life so far! Health, wealth and happiness to you and your kin!
Weird Sex Facts For December
In the animal kingdom casual dating can be extremely hazardous! A recent study of wolf spiders (Schizocosa uetzi) showed that the female of the species will eat males that try to mate with her if they do not resemble males that she has been around previously. So, if you look like her Uncle Bob or her Daddy you will probably score, but if you look like that guy at the bar in his leisure suit- you are on the menu!
Scientists have begun to infer from the findings that there is some link to how "higher life forms" choose potential mates. The female spider can choose to mate with the male, run away from the male or eat the male...so many choices so little time! It would seem that the choice to run away from the male is not a "palatable" option in most cases.
Obscure Vocabulary for December
In the spirit of doing something different rather than defining an obscure word I will define a few obscure words and write a short seasonal story for your entertainment.
Obscure Words Can Be Fun!
'Tis the Season to be jolly and all that but it's also a time that can leave people grasping for "correct" behavior. Not to be yet another battologist or to bloviate but I think there might be a few things you should remember as you "Deck The Halls".
Please try not to be an eccedentesiast or act furciferous or Santa, the jollux, pyknic, quidnunc might add you to his naughty list!
In order to gain as little weight as possible try to knabble at your food. It's ok to be a sybarite but looking tired and bloated won't make you feel very sybaritic! Yes, with that last sentence I am definitely being a rare Philosophunculist by using a new word two different ways.
Now you see what obscure vocabulary can do for your writing! Try impressing your friends and relatives with your new knowledge. Who knows maybe you can avoid a kiss from Aunt Gertrude or a painful pinch on the cheek.
Battologist – Someone who repeats the same thing needlessly or excessively
Bloviate – To speak pompously or in an overbearing way
Eccedentesiast – One who fakes a smile

Knabble – to take small bites or to nibble
