"Fans buy smelly socks worn by Ed Harris"

It's not that the AP Wire posts these things; it's that they post them deadpan. Truth is funnier than The Onion.
Dec. 14, 2004 | WATERVILLE, Maine (AP) -- Smelly socks worn by Ed Harris during the filming of "Empire Falls" were among the treasures snatched up by fans during a weekend sale of props and costumes from the HBO movie. ... "I've got Ed Harris' socks, and they smell, but I'm not washing them," said Bonnie Goodwin, pulling her loot out of a plastic bag. "I've got William Fichtner's shirt and Danielle Panabaker's earrings."
If anyone says anything about James Marster's sock, I'll swat you.

the old me

dovil came up with a meme, a greatest hits post where you list your 5 or 10 favorite posts of your own. ("It's a good way of people who've come along later to catch a glimpse of what you were like when you were young and sprightly, all those long months ago.") I thought it'd be cool to post links to old non-LJ blog posts that lots of people here might not have seen. The choices are actually kind of random.

~ X/S half-drabbles, from outtakes of Sidelines ("Confrontation" is Xander talking to Riley)

I'm not entirely sure I should introduce people to Anna, Circa 2002, because she witters on poetically and broods a lot, and uses possibly pretentious post titles, and also seems quite a bit snarkier, but oh well. That's still me, I guess, unless it's valid to say that you shed old personalities like skin cells. If so, I'll be someone else entirely in another four years.
