please bear with me

did you know that 'omg' means "oh my god"
and 'lol' means "laugh out loud"
and having read all of proust and joyce, nin and sappho
makes you 'literati sans pareil' (mucho literary)

hey i'm just learning These in's and out's
so please snicker a little more softly
i may be a naïf... but, hey...
this dog (me) is hoping to learn new Tricks...and

Genres
motifs
modes
styles
paradigms
idioms
Symbols
subtleties
gestalten
Weltanschauungen
la vie literaire
les belles lettres
la vida preciosa
la casa de la intelligentsia
l'imprimatur de la yada yada
l'insignificance de l'ennui
y mas yada yada

so please, s'il vous plaît,
bear with me

Oh. I adore this one. You are SO much more forgiving of these offenses against language than I am.

I guess I need to learn a couple of new tricks, too. What's Weltanschauungen?

Hi Patry

Weltanschauungen is how they say 'world view' or 'life perspective' in Germany...
