I was disturbed to discover a juice bar in the airport on Friday called Love Juice.

MarkH (MarkH), Monday, 14 June 2004 11:46 (11 years ago) Permalink

That's to get the mile-highers in the mood and lubricated.

I haven't heard the expression "love juice" since I was 16.

i had a layover in Dallas. they have the fucking coolest thing. the Aqua-Massager,. you lay in this waterproof sleeping bag type thing with all your clothes on in the middle of the airport and get pelted with hard streams of water while everyone can watch. very weird. had it been a little more private, i woulda thought it was kinda cool

I'm currently in front of gate 210 in ONT waiting on JetBlue to take me to JFK.

Elvis Telecom (Chris Barrus), Friday, 23 July 2004 04:45 (11 years ago) Permalink

The ONT terminal is nice in a late-90s shopping mall sort of way, but the layout is horrible with one long linear line of gates so you have to walk miles. Additionally, there are no electrical power outlets near the seating, you have to sit on the floor in the middle of the walkway.

At least the wireless is free.

Elvis Telecom (Chris Barrus), Friday, 23 July 2004 04:47 (11 years ago) Permalink

Oh yeah, there's an ant problem here too.

Elvis Telecom (Chris Barrus), Friday, 23 July 2004 04:47 (11 years ago) Permalink

Hell yes, it's ant season. Mine's coming for a stay next week.

Have a good time in NYC, Elvis.

jim wentworth (wench), Friday, 23 July 2004 04:51 (11 years ago) Permalink

There's a LOT of ants here. If this was anything smaller than a giant airport terminal building we'd be re-enacting Phase IV here.

Elvis Telecom (Chris Barrus), Friday, 23 July 2004 05:01 (11 years ago) Permalink

What kind of ants and what's the nature of your trip?

jim wentworth (wench), Friday, 23 July 2004 05:10 (11 years ago) Permalink

Standard-sized house ants.

Going to NYC to see JBR, take more of my stuff out in advance of the October move, and to go see Devo & the Yeah Yeah Yeahs(as mentioned on this thread)

Elvis Telecom (Chris Barrus), Friday, 23 July 2004 05:17 (11 years ago) Permalink

I also win because I was able to score an exit row seat at the last minute. Hooray for extra leg room!

Elvis Telecom (Chris Barrus), Friday, 23 July 2004 05:18 (11 years ago) Permalink

Leg room is a big plus So's the Devo date. Exactly when are they playig?

jim wentworth (wench), Friday, 23 July 2004 05:26 (11 years ago) Permalink

Friday night in Central Park with the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. There's an ILM thread about it.

Anyway, getting on the plane now

Happy landings!

Post-election mood at London Fisher Price is predictably positive. Rest of Newham probably less so.

urrrggh at getting up at 5am on a Saturday to pick someone up at the airport

( who ALSO my boss and his sister!) (sic), Friday, 22 May 2015 20:45 (2 months ago) Permalink

especially when they've redesigned the parking since last time you did this, so you accidentally pay an entire parking fee just getting an outside spot

hope you're picking up someone fun, at least!

I take back all of my past experiences of Midway airport in Chicago kind of being chill, though. Apparently since Southwest has expanded operations it's busy as hell. Still a lot less of a clusterfuck than O'Hare, but crowded.

ultimate american sock (mh), Wednesday, 3 June 2015 20:40 (2 months ago) Permalink

Yeah, they rarely give a shit about liquids being out anymore. I fly a lot, always leave them in my bag, get called out maybe 1 in 15?

Just touched down in Edinburgh. Going to the south of France in a few weeks (same assignment)

It took me literally 15 minutes from leaving my front door to entering the airport, all with public transport. Wonder if that's an ILX record

I've doing LCY to Edinburgh for the last few weeks. Takes me about 30 mins which is great.

Stuck in the runway for half hour though.
