About Rob Partridge

Can I start by saying how much I hate writing these things?  I suppose I should introduce myself, this is, afterall, why you’re here.  Unless of course you’re here because I told you to come here and tell me how wonderful and amazing and great I am.  So yes, I hate writing things like this as they always sound so false.  Should I make it sound something like a CV “in my spare time I like reading a wide variety of books and socialising with my friends.”  Or would it sound better if I tried to be like Miss World? “I like kittens, knitting and anal fisting and want to heal the sick and bring world peace… oh and Tuesdays!”

Until I find a better person to write this – an eight year old essentially – I’ll just leave you with a few bullet points.

  • I live in Galway, Ireland.
  • I’m a big homo.
  • I have low latent inhibition.
  • I have a particular way I have to eat sandwiches.
  • I had a nipple ring ripped out in a fight.
  • I graduated from Princeton.
  • At one point in my life I weighed twenty-five stone.
  • I own land in Scotland.  I’ve forgotten where.
  • I have toes like fingers.
  • I talk that much I forget what the original question was.
  • I’m arrogant.
  • I melted all my toe nails off by wrongly walking on coals.
  • I think Herbert Brenon was one of the most talented Hollywood directors.
  • I drink Morgan’s Spiced Rum and/or Champagne.
  • I hate homophobia.
  • And racism.
  • And Andi Peters.

Some or all of those maybe false.
