G’day, my name’s Cap’n McRummy, the host of The Mahi Mahi Room and since you’ve clicked on the “About Me” link I guess you’d like to know a little bit…about me…
I live a few minutes outside a small country town in south-east Queensland. I’ve lived here my whole life except for a failed 12 month experiment when I was younger in which I moved to the Sunshine Coast, eager for a different perspective on life.
I’m just your average single Aussie bloke (never married, no kids) that enjoys the usual things blokes tend to hold dear, especially the footy and having a few quiet drinks with mates. I love music but don’t have much (if any) musical talent which limits my enjoyment to listening rather than playing. I’m a long way from being financially comfortable but I manage to make ends meet and have a little left over for some luxuries, like a bottle of rum or a carton a beer at the end of the week.
The fact that none of my regulars seem to remember to pay for their drinks here at The Mahi Mahi Room means I have to work a second job to make ends meet. Thankfully my immediate family all live locally which means I’ve somehow landed in the family business but that also means we get to spend a lot of time together. As great as that is there are days when I’m not entirely sure if that’s always a good thing or not. Also, being in a small town means you can’t walk too far without seeing someone you know and in that regard I’m thankful for the friendships I’ve made over the years.
I’m reasonably fit and healthy (knees and ankles excluded) due to the many years I played rugby league as well as several other sports. I’m long since retired from the more active sports and my involvement is now largely limited to watching the NRL on TV and working on my “middle age six pack” one glass at a time. But on the odd occasion I’ve been known to dust of the boots for light jog and a game for the “Old Boys” which, in reality, is more about the drinks afterwards than the “footy” on the field.
On the romance front, I’ve never had much luck. I just haven’t met more than a couple of girls who I hit it off with romantically, but certainly not from a lack of trying. Now I realize I’m no Brad Pitt in the looks department but I’ve had my share of female admirers over the years so I mustn’t be too hideous either.
In my favour, I can lay claim to being a budding cocktail making bartender extraordinaire, which is always a hit with the ladies so I’m told, especially where free booze is involved. Apparently I also look pretty good to the opposite sex when viewed through very thick “beer goggles”…
So, with the formalities out of the way, pull up a stool at the bar, grab a drink and enjoy your visit
