ramble through the bronx

yes, this here is ramble through the bronx, the continuing musings of a graduate student* who should be writing her dissertation, but honestly, living in new york city there's really so much else to do...

* and her commenting friends. And guest blogger.

Please send me advice on how to remove paint from my favourite black shirt (from H&M, with cool stripy sleeves and a great collar). I was walking to the library, and stopped to finish the last of my coffee. I leaned against a lamppost, listening to Tegan & Sara on my iPod, sipping coffee, lost in thought. Suddenly I looked down at my sleeve and thought, "oh, no, Fordham, you've cursed me again." There was no "Wet Paint" sign, but the lamppost had just been freshly painted green.

So I have a green sleeve. I don't know exactly what kind of paint it is -- outdoor paint, blah blah blah. All over the whole sleeve.

This seemed to be the best advice, and I suppose I'll try it (the shirt is pretty much ruined, since it's a dressy enough shirt that I can't just ignore the paint stains), but anything you guys can suggest will be very very welcome. I'm still at school, so I'm not in a position to quickly take off my shirt & start scrubbing.
