Because it must be said

I am not now, nor have I ever been, a fan of vampires. I just don't *get* it.

OTOH extreme loose-endedness has driven me back to my Chinese grammar book where, hearteningly, the sample sentences keep giving me words I've heard in Woxin, like 可是. (Listen, 可是 is a very useful word.) First the context, then the explanation, is how it works. Alas, my grammar book won't give me that set phrase one uses when referring to one's ancestors' spirits, and my wobbly memory won't either.
