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

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 (twelve 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 (twelve years ago) Permalink

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

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

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

jim wentworth (wench), Friday, 23 July 2004 05:10 (twelve 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 (twelve 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 (twelve 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 (twelve 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

scene: Dublin airport, 5am, Saturday

young parents of toddlers. I mostly try to forbear from position of lol-i-got-nobody-pregnant privilege, but:

fled to the table next to me in the airport, literally landed down like a hurricane with two big fry ups for themselves. market value thirty quid. tray hadn't hit the table and she said right we have to go. toddler one looking at the food on the table and screaming, they got up and left. 45 seconds max. yerman grabbed a rasher off the plate to eat on the way. so they took two kids, fucked everyone off in the queue behind them, stressed themselves out, mithered the children with the sight of the food, left the whole lot on the table and ran off in a fluster immediately. this was in full knowledge of the time limit they were under in advance.

I was for vulturing, she said not.

have personally awful memories of dublin airport, having consumed a genuinely poisonous 'steak sandwich' at a central dublin diner just beforehand, was burping phosgene every 3 minutes while trying to sleep, my just-married still freaking out our hotel room had a ghost in it (which is why we'd headed to sleep overnight at the airport), altogether the end of the honeymoon ended up lasting nearly 2 years then over n out

Mock the Week is a British topical celebrity panel game hosted by Dara Ó Briain. The game is influenced by improvised topical stand-up comedy, with several rounds requiring players to deliver answers on unexpected subjects on the spur of the moment.[citation needed]

It is made by independent production company Angst Productions and made its debut on BBC Two on 5 June 2005. It was created by Dan Patterson and Mark Leveson, the same people responsible for the comedy game show Whose Line Is It Anyway?[2] The show's theme music is "News of the World" by The Jam.[3]

Old episodes currently air on Dave, a fact that is frequently mentioned on the show. Episodes regularly attract 3.5 million viewers.[4]

40 minutes wait on the tarmac at Heathrow for a bus to take us to the terminal. Now standing in a half-hour queue for border checking whatnot. My suitcase will be dizzy by the time I get through.

The only available outlet I could find during my 4 hour Sea-Tac layover requires me to sit in the tiny space underneath the arrival / departure sign in the N terminal so every once in a while I get a mass of people congregating in front of me and staring above me.

40 minutes or so. Halfway through they had a little station to check your passport and boarding pass, then continue queuing.

40 minutes wait on the tarmac at Heathrow for a bus to take us to the terminal. Now standing in a half-hour queue for border checking whatnot. My suitcase will be dizzy by the time I get through.

BTW by the end of this, it had taken me about six hours to fly from Toronto to London, and then three hours to get from landing to the house in north London I was staying in.

also I went to Stansted for the first time a few weeks ago, but due to a bout of diarrhoea (not mine) and a suicide (also not mine) ended up leaving the airport and renting a car and driving to another country.

Forty minutes is one of your longest? Are you including going through Customs, or just your run-of-the-mill metal x-ray deal?

Forty minutes seems about right, from my past experiences. Granted, I was sweating it out because of all my Kinder Surprises stocked with ninja stars inside, but still.

My only experience of JFK was a 45 minute wait followed by an hour-long security interview, so could be worse.

All British airports are terrible in September / early October as you have a lot of new students coming for the start of term and getting the third, fourth and fifth degree from the immigration goons. I think i landed at Stansted at midnight last autumn and cleared the immigration queue at 2am.

ugh even the Eurostar terminal at the Gare du Nord this weekend was like that, British immigration taking 15 minutes with one American kid who'd been in Paris for the weekend with his parents. stuck behind him I heard the whole spiel.
