8176 –

Didn’t do Opa.. maybe next week. The gang didn’t gel.

Rosemary’ll be here about 9am, which means Newt and I go back to the porch for a few. Might be a tad chilly this time…we’ll see.

Written on the bus yesterday morning –


Photo is from an earlier ride, when nobody else was aboard.

I dreamt last night that someone grasped my shoulders, pressed their thumbs into my armpits, and then my chest opened up — skin pulled back like contact paper on a drawer, a curved metal pair of bands where my ribs should’ve been opening like french doors. The cavity / cache was warm and dry, no sign of it’s biological location at all. A vaguely egg-shaped mechanical device was removed, and another was put in it’s place. the newer one seemed like something freshly constructed, clean ceramic with rubber rings, smelled a bit like machine oil. I don’t recall the face of the one who did that to me.

Do they make dried olives for cooking or a garnish? Would they be edible?

The bus this morning smells like a combination of car exhaust, cherry jolly ranchers and burger king hash brown rounds. Not entirely bad, and better than it could be, for sure.

More and more folks are using the bike racks on the front of the bus… more often than not, both slots are filled when I get aboard. I may rethink my idea of cycling to the stop, unless I spot a good place to lock it down for the workday.

I think I’m just going to stop posting local news… nah. too much cool freaky stuff.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – Airport baggage screeners found a human head with teeth, hair and skin in the luggage of a woman who said she intended to ward off evil spirits with it, authorities said Friday.

Myrlene Severe, 30, a Haitian-born permanent U.S. resident, was charged Friday with smuggling a human head into the U.S. without proper documentation.

Customs and Border Protection officials found the head Thursday, after Severe arrived at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport on a Lynx International Airlines flight from Cap Haitien, Haiti, said Barbara Gonzalez, a spokeswoman for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement in Miami.

“It still had teeth, hair and bits of skin and lots of dirt,” Gonzalez said.

Severe told authorities she had obtained the package in Haiti for “use as a part of her voodoo beliefs,” ICE Special Agent Erick Hernandez wrote in an affidavit in support of a criminal complaint.

“Severe also stated that the purpose of the package was to ward off evil spirits,” Hernandez wrote.

Severe, who also was charged with failing to declare the head and transporting hazardous material in air commerce, faces a maximum of 15 years in prison if convicted of all charges, prosecutors said.

Severe remained held Friday in lieu of a $100,000 bond. She is due back in federal court March 2.
