people been a-ing some q's, so i'm just gonna answer em all right here and now.
Q: you were a bit vague about when you were actually leaving... when's the last day you're baking? and when are you coming back??
A: a ha! you've passed my are-you-paying-attention test! i'm baking up til August 26 - less than two weeks from today. i'll be back in time for Thanksgiving. get your bread while you can homies.
Q: baker boy, you say you're going to southeast asia, but where in the heck are you actually going?
A: well, i'm flattered you're that interested. our plan is to fly into bangkok, and travel around thailand, vietnam, cambodia, and laos. no super solid plans, we're just looking for a nice mix of adventure - wild nature, urban culture, peaceful temple, sweaty farming... if you've got any tips, i'd love to hear em.
Q: what in the frik am i going to do while you're gone?
A: you really are the sweetest. if you really like, you can buy a couple extra loaves and just freeze them in ziplock bags. freezing bread stops it right in its tracks, and then you can take it out whenever you like, let it thaw for a few hrs, toss it in a 350F oven for 10 min, and have a jbb party. take a pic of it and send it to me and make me happy.
Q: what's your sign?
A: i'm not into that kinda stuff, but i value different perspectives, and i love how curious you are.
Q: you're going to burning man, aren't you? i don't like burning man, even though i've never been... are you a burner?
A: yes, i'm going. no, i'm not a "burner." and i'm also not a hater. you shouldn't be either. as one of the greatest singer songwriters of my generation once said, "before you knock it, try it first." free loaf (!!!) to whoever names this trailblazer and acknowledges that i'm jking your a$s.
Q: what is this "big news" you keep hinting at? what the heck is your problem just tell me what you're talking about!
A: i'm glad i've piqued your interest and i'm going to drop the bomb soon, i promise you. you cannot rush a good loaf of bread.
Q: when is this funny q & a going to stop?
