A journal of the day-to-day adventures of Cap’n McRummy


Today I was looking for some stuff in the shed and found myself face to face with my old golf clubs. Being the sort of bloke who gets easily sidetracked when I’m in the middle of boring housework type jobs (full-time bar wench position still available to the right applicant btw) so I thought “why not?” [...]

“Have You Even Looked?”

So I was talking to a nice old lady in the store last week and she’s apparently an acquaintance of my parents from way back. When I end up entertaining these types of people until one of the parents is free to take over, and as is the case more often than not, she moved the [...]

“May I have this dance?”

The year was 1986. It was summer, I hadn't quite turned thirteen and I was spending a long weekend in a camp with all the other kids whose parents were attending an APEX conference on the Gold Coast. There had to be a couple of hundred of us ranging in ages from 5 to 15 years [...]

I’ve spent the last two or three years without doing ANY exercise at all and it’s starting to show, although I’m feeling it more than its showing. I don’t have as much energy as I used to and I miss that a little. Yes I AM carrying a little extra padding around the middle compared to [...]

“From the mouths of babes”

I’m always looking for advice when it comes to relationships so I thought it couldn’t hurt to take some insight from kids: 1. How do you decide who to marry? "You got to find somebody who likes the same stuff.  Like, if you like sports, she should like it that you like sports, and she should [...]

Ok, I have a confession to make. I have a very real and tangible fear of going grocery shopping. I always put it off as long as I can until I can’t subsist on the scraps in the pantry any longer. Most time I have to force myself into going because my desire to eat finally [...]

The great thing about having your own pool table is that you get to make your own rules. Now I’m not talking about stupid rules like making other players use their opposite hand or garbage like that. Everywhere you go that has a pool table has a slightly varied set of rules and there’s always going [...]

“Of droughts and flooding rains”

It’s been a while since I’ve seen it this dry. The cracks opening up in the ground have got me a little worried that the dog might fall in one and get stuck. Ok, they’re not THAT bad but it shows how little rain we’ve had this year. So far this year we’ve had rain on [...]

“It was a dark and stormy night…”

In between taste testing cocktails my regular drink of choice is Bundaberg Rum with Bundaberg Ginger Beer. It used to be plain old rum and coke but after many years of not being able to sleep properly after having a few drinks I decided to give up the caffeine hit that came with drinking that battery [...]
