Sorry, it read like a pitch-type segue. You know, of the "and here's what I use" *shiny product* "but wait there's more!"

You could have just said it's a specialty tip - because I kind of read that "tip" as a suggestion, not the utensil.

(Which, btw, you can save yourself time, trouble, and expense and just buy tips - and then use sealable bags with the corners cut for the bags)

Dr. Guy gave me sausage. Which is why we've been talking in innuendo for pages.

Yeah I know, but when MrMacologist and I got married we had a very small, quiet affair with only a few people and we never did a reception or anything. Muslim tradition dictates that we need to have some kind of 'do' to tell people "Hey, we're married, here's some food so you don't forget and get weird about it" so we kinda have to do that at some point.

Complicated life is complicated.

Especially with regards to the "get weird about it" part, you really do need to throw one.

I know of a way to make it move past hugging. First, you go to the liquor store...are you writing this down?

The Asian community (Pakistan/India Asian, not the others) seem to expect huuuuuuuuge weddings, copious amounts of food, lavish dresses, bling-tastic jewellery and a stretch limo or you aren't really married.

Thankfully, my family aren't Asian and MrMac's family aren't here, so we should be spared most of the fuss. I hope.

I do. The kit came with several tips though and I was in emergency birthday preparedness mode, so I bought the little kit. I've been meaning to do pudding filled cupcakes for ages now.

We had reasonable wedding followed with very fun reception. Even with that, I'd have loved to skip all the junk with planning a wedding and just have done a small gig with very fun reception.

And then I remembered that I typed it up into a pretty little LibreOffice document. Today has been a little tense.

I have tea. I have hopefully got the littlest kiddo clothed in a secure enough fashion that he won't rip his diaper off again and the other two are quiet, so hopefully all is good.

Earl Grey reminds me of quiet times.

Duct tape. No, I don't mean that as a joke.

Obviously make sure the tape is fully on the diaper, because you don't want the adhesive in skin contact. And when you put the duct tape on the diaper, make sure the ends are far enough around the sides to be not easily within reach. Um, unless you have TWO kids willing to help each other, in which case it only slows them down.

I am very glad mine have mostly outgrown that stage, because their room was frequently the target of overnight "Poopcasso" wall art.
