Oh, please. The only really busy person is Jeff Green. Folks, without Green you know we would not be in the Playoffs this year. I don’t need to tell you that, do I? Well, do I?
But we all have different ways of being busy, whether it’s sorting socks or cleaning out the refrigerator.
This week it was busy in The Haas Test Kitchen. For sure, for sure.
Trying to avoid being distracted by the chirping European starlings nesting in the flue, I wrote reports on the mentally ill I see in hospitals and read about restaurant owners as described by Nicholas Lander.
Even more significantly: I was interviewed on America’s Test Kitchen, hosted by the remarkable and very brainy Chris Kimball, and The Frommer Travel Show, hosted by the lively and thoughtful Pauline Frommer. Both are radio shows and both will air in a few weeks.
And this just in: My piece on the Tuskegee Airmen ran yesterday in The Bay State Banner: http://www.baystatebanner.com/local12-2013-04-04.
Will this be the subject of my next book? We shall see.
And taking a break from the work? Celtics-Pistons on Wednesday night preceded by dinner @ Scampo. I swore off Scampo after numerous dreadful meals, but my go-to place, Nebo, has moved from the area near the Garden. Look, the food at the former is so high in fat and lots of it and so much salt is added that I wake up parched and just before bed? Antacids. It’s food that goes well with gin.
Thank goodness Jeff Green had another great game!
