I have white spray paint on my fingers, and it won't dry properly and is disconcertingly sticky when I try to type. Meh.

and yikes, white spray paint? do you have any alcohol swabs? they might help remove it.

The white spray paint was due to a Whole Thing where I went out and spent my landlord's money on new trash-cans (nice ones! with wheels!), and bought some spray paint to mark them with our street numbers -- and when I got home, the spray paint was BROKEN, I tell you! The little nozzle thing came right off and would not affix back to the can, and that is the entire mechanism by which you actually get spray paint OUT of the can.

So the "all over the fingers" part was the result of attempts to [a] shove the little nozzle thing back in (it wouldn't stay), and [b] half-assedly using it to try to spray the numbers on anyway.

The two new trash-cans (which are dark green) now look as if they had numbers sprayed on them by Jackson Pollack.

(rim-shot)

I didn't have alcohol swabs. Nor paint-remover. But what I discovered was -- SOS pads (you know, steel wool pads with some kind of bluish substance that helps clean pots and pans) do the trick! Who knew?

that most definitely doesn't sound like fun.

still, a little pollack on the street will perhaps confuse folks, so all isn't lost.

and sos pads? ouch. ;)

With the SOS pads, it was more like just using them to clean some silverware that I'd been meaning to clean (that had rust spots), when I noticed that the paint was coming off too. Bonus!

It's really hard to strike a swashbuckling pose while hefting a torpedo, though. Just sayin'.

Well, I suppose if I can still brandish a cutlass while doing so, then...

This is the trouble. Forcing either/or choices. When the obvious answer to some is "all of the above!"

The kitten was indeed your first mistake, I'm thinkin'.

I say we gang up on his ship from all sides, and split the take later.

I *definitely* want to hear more about the ankle-length skirt...

Ah, but it's never a good idea to gang up on a pirate wearing an ankle-length skirt and Crocs.

That, or start a land war in asia.

I'm just sayin'.
