One-Line Bio

44, math teacher. Got (re-)married in 2005l


Hello, this is Rob. This is my first blog, started late 2003. It will have a little of everything. I aspire to be an entertaining blogger - hopefully, enough so that you bookmark TGLF. TGLF is a combination music-politics blog

(If you are Googling me based on having me (or your kid) as a teacher, sorry about the rampant profanity. I'm trying to cut down.)

TGLF is named after a Billy Bragg song ("mixing pop and politics/he asks me what the use is/I offer him embarassment/and my usual excuses").

I am divorced, but I got remarried in 2005. I have a son who lives in the Midwest with his mother. He is autistic, but not profoundly so. He is 8. I see him a few times a year because I can't always deal with it and he lives so far away. He and his mom moved back east for a while in the summer of '04, but they bolted for Minneapolis late in 2004.

This is the great failure of my life so far.

I teach 8th grade math in a New Jersey school district.

I was circling the drain for a while, but I managed to pull out of it thanks to many good people, including Mom and Dad. And definitely Kim. Sorry, no alcohol or drugs were involved.
