CBS' Katie Couric had a chance to sit down and talk with Eric Jones regarding his upcoming trip to Thailand in February. Katie met up with Eric in Cole Valley near his home at the Reverie coffee shop and shared a double tuxedo mocha light whip cream while doing the interview. Here's what followed...
KC: Well God I'm so happy we finally found a chance to meet and discuss your upcoming travels. I mean in 2008 so far it's been Britney Spears this and Britney that.. or "Where is Eric Jones spending his time?" Is he still doing headstands?? I mean Oh my God... exciting times right?? So what was it that made you want to go to Thailand? I mean you're crazy! (laughs and touches her knee and looks at camera) Are you looking for something different? Are you soul searching?
EJ: That's really personal actually....
what are you getting at?
I mean what have you done lately Katie?
KC: I'm not sure I understand. Let's just start by telling us what you expect from your trip to Thailand? I mean what an exciting place!!!
EJ: Why don't you take a look in the mirror and stop asking others how you should live your life.
KC: This is really weird because before we went live we were having a great conversation over coffee regarding your trip to Thailand and you sounded very excited to talk about it and share with the crowd.
EJ: (total silence and just a surly stare right into Katie's eyes)....
KC: I'm not sure what you want me to ask or what you want to talk about.
EJ: I'm not sure either Katie. I'm not sure about a lot of things. Especially this interview. What was your childhood like?
KC: (Long sigh and a look to her camera man with a shrug) I'm not sure how that is relevant. (Pause)
Well what about the headstands. Seems like it's what you like to talk about lately.
EJ: I thought this was about Thailand?
KC: You didn't want to talk about Thailand. Eric I'm really open to discuss whatever you want to discuss...I think the audience is really interested.
EJ: (Eric gets on chair and does headstand for 30 seconds....gets down and pours his glass of ice water over his head and just stares at Katie)
KC: You know maybe this wasn't such a good idea.
EJ: (Just stares at Katie with water dripping from his face)
KC: (silence and stare)
EJ: (silence and stare)
