Miles Edgeworth spent a lot of effort getting his alpha instincts under control. Manfred von Karma taught him what it was to be a perfect alpha, and he'd never considered that he should act otherwise.

Of course it was eventually going to come crashing down around his ears. Fortunately, Phoenix Wright is a beta who, for better or for worse, doesn't care in the least about perfect alpha behavior.

So I'm going to say what I basically said when I posted this to my beta (ha ha) filter, which is--hi! I'm not dead! I'm hanging out on the Yuletide discord and working on graaaaaad school. I may never actually get around to writing the rest of that Yuletide recs post at this point, but I did finish this story. It was cathartic, what can I say.

The surgical center called this morning with scheduling information: they want me there at 1 p.m., and it's okay to have a "light meal" beforehand. I'm also supposed to take my regular morning medications at the usual time.

Also, my doctor's office doctor sent me the lab report on the pre-surgical blood testing, with the comment "looks good."

Hey, a snow day! I was on vacation and at an anime convention this past weekend so I mostly read manga this week.

Recently Finished
The Sisters of the Winter Wood by Rena Rossner, which is a historical fantasy novel that combines Jewish folklore, Rosetti poem The Goblin Market, and the author's family history of surviving pogroms to focus on two Jewish sisters who have magical abilities. It was a very good read, though I misjudged both of the love interests, and side-eyed a bit of a choice at the end. Still, the sisters' relationship was great and the magical world was fascinating! 

I also read several manga. One, Beauty and the Beast Girl, was a one-shot shoujo ai manga about a monster in the woods and a blind girl who falls in love with her. It was an enjoyable read, though I'm not sure the ending was believable. Still, a happy ending is good! The other one was the first volume of 10 Dance, a yaoi manga about two male ballroom dancers who challenge each other to participate in the famous 10 count dance competition and fall in love. I really like it so far! The guys' chemistry is great, and I appreciate that their female partners also get a chance to shine and befriend each other. 
Currently Reading
I'm into the final chapters of the nonfiction novel Orphan Trains: The Story of Charles Loring Brace and the Children He Saved and Failed by Stephen O'Connor, an account of the mixed success of a 19th and 20th century child welfare program in which vagrant children of cities like NYC were sent to rural families in the Midwest. It was a fascinating, if harrowing look, at how child welfare and care has evolved, and why the program, while well-meaning, had serious flaws. It also had a lot of fascinating first-hand accounts.   
What's Next
Invisible: The Forgotten Story of the Black Woman Lawyer Who Took Down America's Most Powerful Mobster by Stephen L. Carter is due soon, so probably that one. After that, either The Pinks: The First Women Detectives, Operatives, and Spies With the Pinkerton National Detective Agency by Chris Enss or Radiant Days, Haunted Nights: Great Tales from the Treasury of Yiddish Folk Literature by Joachim Neugroschel.

It's a belated Festivids post! I was waiting because I wanted to link to the version of the vid with credits, but it turns out I'm still working on the credits, because why do something simple when you can complicate it? Although I'm learning new things, so that's actually my excuse.

So until then, here is the version without credits that is not yet on my YouTube account.

Despite being awake late last night, I woke up a little after 7 a.m. I made tea, then went down to the fitness center. This time I did a few exercises and soaked in the hot tub for a bit, which my legs appreciated.

That took me to about 8:30. There was no Sunday morning programming that interested me, and I didn't feel like hanging out for a couple of hours hoping someone I knew would walk past and be in a mood for conversation, so I got dressed, checked out, and headed home. (Judy Bemis saw me in the lobby as I was heading out; we hugged goodbye as she explained that she was on her way to a shift in the con treasury.)

I stopped off at South Station and grabbed a savory croissant at the Pret a Manget; I hadn't wanted to wait in line at the hotel lobby Starbucks, but it seemed imprudent to wait until I got home. One disadvantage of this year's Boskone is that the con suite had only packaged snacks--chips, candy, cookies, I think some little packets of cheese and crackers, rather than bagels or donuts, or the lots and lots of hard boiled eggs they've had in previous years. There wasn't even milk for the coffee and tea, just packets of sugar and creamer. (This seems to have been a change in hotel policy.) If I go to another con at that hotel, and stay overnight, I am going to make sure to bring yogurt and other food I can keep in the fridge. (I'd bought a couple of single-serving yogurts, and forgot to grab them on my way out of Adrian's apartment Friday; if I'd known how limited the con suite would be, I'd have stopped in South Station and at least gotten some more yogurt.)

Since getting home I have played three games of Scrabble with [personal profile] cattitude, combed Molly, proofread one short article for Queue, stretched and exercised, and unloaded (twice), reloaded (twice), and run the dishwasher. Tomorrow's plan is more Scrabble, proofreading, stretching, and playing with the cats.

"Coffee!" she demands without so much as a please or thank you. She doesn't wait to hear the price and shoves a handful of coins across the counter. One of the coins is a U.S. nickel. Two are British shillings, oddly shiny given their age. He doesn't recognize the other coins she's handed him, but at least one of them appears to be solid gold.

Netflix movie Knuckleball )

I’m tired of being an adult. I had some movers take some stuff from the old place to here. I’d spent the day before packing, packing. I still have books and more crap to move. I just didn’t have time to get everything ready. I’m having trouble with getting a copy of my title for the old place and I can’t get rid of it until that’s settled. I had to call an electrician because I blew a fuse and stuff had to be updated. It was cold and rainy for days.

I’ve been watching Britbox. I watched Jonathan Creek whose writers had some fun with characters’ names, Dr. Strange, Emma Lazarus, Wendell Wilke. There were also some actors who have careers who showed up as bit players. The show was a perfect accompaniment to packing. The plot is always the same. A locked room from which a murderer escaped. How was it done?

I’m also watching the Civilisation with Kenneth Clark. I watched it first time around and I still can recall some of Clark’s observations, witty dry. I bought the book, too.

Hey, fellow Pokemon Go players! In case you haven't heard, the bonus PvP rewards have already started for February's Community Day this weekend. Don't miss out!

All weekend long, starting today, we can get 5 rewards per day from battling the NPC team leaders (instead of the usual 1), and we can get another 5 rewards per day from battling real fellow trainers (instead of the usual 3). The guaranteed Sinnoh Stones are tomorrow (Saturday) only (in parts of the world where this Community Day is Saturday), but even they will be throughout the day, midnight to midnight, not only during the 3-hour Community Day window.

Also, if you haven't heard, stat buffs are coming! Suddenly, Ancient Power on a Mamoswine looks much, much sweeter than it did a few days ago. I have an appointment that's going to make me miss half of Community Day, and, despite wanting a shiny watermelon Swinub of my own -- and all the boosted stardust! -- I was very blase about missing out ... until the stat buffs were announced. Poor timing for me! Ah, well. I do have several saved-up Swinub from the ice event to evolve (without events, ice types are vanishingly rare here).

Have fun!
