My self-summary
My name is Winston, I make Bread for a living and do not own a car.
I bicycled across the country several years ago, cementing my love of the open road and the bike.
I get wanderlust.
I love good food & drink. I enjoy cooking, for myself or for others.

I do not believe in implied consent. I believe in honesty, and asking.
What I’m doing with my life
Making bread. A lot of bread.
I'm being the best friend that I can to those whom I love. I'm biking a lot.
I want to bike across another Continent, perhaps Eurasia, or Australia. I'm working to pay off the debt that I chose to take on in return for a AOS degree in Baking & Pastry Arts.
I’m really good at
Making bread & croissants, bicycling all day, losing sunglasses, cooking vegan & vegetarian meals, polishing shoes, arriving on time, finding things on eBay or in thrift shops, reading an entire book in an afternoon, drinking until 11:30 and going to work at 5 the next morning, waking up at 2:25 in the morning, sleeping until noon when it's convenient.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I arrived by bike, or that I like long coats.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Music: Amanda palmer, Jack white, Florence & the Machine, Enter the Haggis, Carbon Leaf, Dick dale & all other surf guitar, black keys, Joni Mitchell, Cake, Belle & Sebastian, The Cranberries, Ramstein, Aerosmith, Arctic monkeys. There's more.

Books: The Magicians by Lev Grossman. Anything by Bernd Heinrich (nature writing & science), American Gods by neil Gaiman, Lots & lots more.

Movies: Once upon a time in the west, Anything with Jason Statham, especially lock, stock & two smoking barrels, What's eating gilbert grape, Lots more but I can't think of them.

Shows: Hell on Wheels , Game of thrones, Walking dead. That's about it, I don't watch a shitload of TV, and I'm very prone to giving up on shows, I'd rather be outside most of the time, or reading.

Food: Olives, cheese, butter, bread, peanuts, tomatoes(raw, sauce, soup... you name it.) Properly cooked tempeh (you have to marinate it... for awhile), kiefer, fresh salads, roasted vegetables, random stir fries, basically everything but fast food.
Six things I could never do without
Good black Coffee, Bicycling, Sky, Salt, IPA, The written word.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Bicycling. That's about it. Sometime past & future conversations.
Sometimes bread. Sometimes people.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either sleeping, hanging out or occasionally at a bar. Since I work as a production baker I usually have to work on Saturday morning.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have braces, not for much longer, but I may as well not hide it.
I haven't had much luck in relationships, or many of them, friendships yes, but I'm not very good at taking things farther than that.
You should message me if
You think it's cool that I only have a bicycle & I am not remotely into getting a car. If you like black coffee. If you like bread.
If you feel like it. Let's meet over coffee or tea somewhere. I'm not into protracted online relationships, or anything like that, I just don't like it.
The two of us
