...when I should have written:

Your immediate issue is this: putting __dict = {} in the *class*
declaration does not make a separate attribute for each *instance*; it
merely makes a single attribute for the class. To create an attribute
for the INSTANCE, you must write code which--surprise, surprise--adds
        ^^^^^^^^
that attribute to the *instance*.
