We are sorry to inform you that there will be no postings to this blog until further notice.
The author of the blog, known only as “Octo-woman”, is in the King County jail, awaiting arraignment on Friday, April 1. She has been charged with excessive jaywalking, disorderly conduct, mental ineptitude, and insubordination in the presence of a police officer. For some reason, her computer has been confiscated and will be used as evidence against her.
On March 31st, Octo-woman was observed jaywalking across 35th Street Northeast, in order to return to the Seattle Public Library Northeast Branch several overdue library books which she had earlier claimed had already been previously returned.
Upon capture by a police officer, she refused to divulge her true name and birthdate, stating only that her street name is “Octo-woman” and that her age is “going on 80”.
When the police officer demanded to know why she hadn’t used the clearly designated crosswalk. Octo-woman explained that she didn’t think that crosswalks were supposed to be used by cheerful people such as she.
If she ever gets out, she may be able to resume writing entries in the blog. Her readers are accustomed to her long “sentences”, so she might be out by Easter or by the end of April Fool’s Day, whichever comes first.
