Unescorted

I love being in the city. Kristin and I recently went to San Francisco where I had a work conference. I always appreciate when work obligations happen in good tourism cities because I’ll typically tack a couple of days onto the end of the trip and enjoy the city at a fraction of the cost….

Twitter

Very quickly, and hopefully not too confusing… For those of you who were previously following @EksAxis on Twitter, you’re now following @MeetJonEks. For many of you, this means you are no longer getting my most up to date Tweets. For those of you who were previously following @CruJonesSociety on Twitter, you’re now following @EksAxis. If…

Authenticity

Thanks to a recent conversation on Facebook with my friend Dustin and his friend Casey, I have been thinking about irony and authenticity a lot. Here are some of the contributing factors to my thoughts about these topics.

Fish

I was hungover for seven fucking hours in the car. It was worth it though because the wife and I were in the thick of a brutal three week travel stretch where we were little more than two ships passing in the night. We bought tickets to Ska Brewing’s 17th Anniversary Party, which featured more…

Kinship

I rarely find a fellow traveler that impresses me. As I’ve talked about before, I travel plenty, and I know what I’m doing. I walk with purpose, I don’t block thoroughfares and I know where the fuck I’m going. I wish I could throw away people’s luggage the way George Clooney does to Anna Kendrick…

Horsemen

We play a fucklot of trivia. Our most frequent trivia outings happen at places that feature Geeks Who Drink pub quizzes where we usually acquit ourselves well and finish in the top 3 teams which merits house cash as a prize. It’s two of our favorite things – nerdery and alcohol. We’re going to Austin…
