I am so pleased to have recalled enough Russian to hack back into this account!!

You see, my LiveJournal I have password-protected, then forgotten it. The "forgot password?" email was not in my native language. (I mean, I vaguely understand Russian, but only vaguely.)
This is only relevant since it happens so regularly and also I am mildly worried that an Ash Ketchum who is not Claire-chan might come in and start posting nudes I didn't intend to be there on my LiveJournal one of these days.
N.B.: I am not actually a l33t haxx0r irl. I think only my father and a few kids from across the world could lay claim to that title.

IT IS THE NEW YEAR AND I HAVE GIVEN GREETINGS TO ALL MY BEST FRIENDS ERGO I AM CONTENT!

As far as Free Library of Philadelphia news goes: I have decided to attempt to read the sixth Harry Potter in Chinese as a New Year's present to myself. It's quite an adventure. My decision on selecting that edition was made by thinking, well, most likely, most people won't be looking for that version of Harry Potter. I skimmed the English version once when it first came out a million years ago then took it back to the library.

I have researched that Harry Potter is on the most popular books of 2020 listing in the juveniles section. The sixth book is where I left off before finals in high school, so I loaned the Chinese version of that book to read now (I vaguely understand Chinese, Japanese, Russian, French, and Latin). Considering languages, I think it is a better idea to build on the little stubs of the five foreign languages I've got before expanding into Spanish, Romansh, Dutch, Danish, Arabic, Portuguese, etc ad infinitum... I took a stab at Hindi/Urdu a looong time ago but I am a bit shy at coming back. Maybe I will anyway.
On my phone, I have tested and proven that I am in the Ravenclaw house in whatever Pottermore became now... Wikipedia says it is now called WizardingWorld dot com. I have chosen an owl that looks like Cora-chan, my darling cat, even if it would make more sense that an owl should be more like my pet bird - Oliver - in reality. But owls and parrots are not as close in behaviour as owls and cats - they stalk prey and don't chit-chat.

Speaking of Dutch, I recently reconnected with a high school friend on a meditation app who is in Belgium now! I am so pleased!

I mean, my older cat Matilda sleeps on my chest in the "seizure dog" position I read about from all that literature when it became apparent that I might be stuck with a seizure condition for the rest of eternity. OR until I discover the cure. You know. :D

In 2020, I have read almost as many books as there were Pokémon in the original RBY games, 147, the last book being Al Gore's The Future, and the first book being Andrey Karkov's Death and the Penguin.

There's been a silver fox in our backyard! My mother thinks that it's been attracted by all the birdseed I've been putting out.

Five days from now - Thursday Friday Saturday Sunday Monday - I haven't used that tag in a while. I know I have a doctor's appointment coming up... okay, that's already been written down.

SO I HOPE YOU ARE ALL WELL.
