DFW Airport Terminal D

First time I visited the new DFW Airport Terminal D, it was too early in the morning to take notice. I was an extra in an American Airlines commercial. It was more fun to ogle the craft services table and read a book. Last night, I picked up Erik at the terminal. After finding rock star parking, I enjoyed standing in one spot as numerous moving sidewalks propelled me forward. So disco. And sedentary. This terminal is the land of flat screens, terrazzo floors, slickity slickness, and really confusing signage. I had to ask 3 people where the baggage claim was (the airport workers were equally lost, or wanted to keep me lost). Once Erik and I got ourselves together, we went on a scavenger hunt for the ATM, which led us through the snazzy new Hyatt, built right into the terminal. All very sci-fi and kinda Asian sleek. We happened through the new restaurant at the new hotel, which was a sea of haircut men in polo shirts – a business man mating ground. You could feel the stock market groaning through their conversations, and the expense accounts simmering on the plates at the tables. Where are the prostitutes, I was wondering. I thought these demographics go hand in hand. I wonder if those men were wondering the same thing? In any event, it really was sleek and sophisticated. And the food smelled great. If I was to be stuck at Terminal D without an Admiral’s Club membership, knowing what I now know, I’d hide out there. They had a swanky coffee shop too (called Moka). That reminds me. Future post idea: the independent coffee shops in Dallas (let’s all support them!). Gachet on Greenville is my favorite. Okay, I’ll save that for another post….cheers!

    I haven’t had a chance to check out Gachet on Greenville yet…I live really close to there, must make it a point to spend a morning there this weekend.

    Sorry for this, but I’m about ready to hit the unsubscribe button on my RSS reader. I read a LOT of blogs and this blog was pretty good before (sparse was fine with me), but I can do without the obvious “traffic is bad on 35” or this long post with no paragraph breaks, no pictures, very little useful info, and no mention of the Terminal D art program (?!?)

    I hear ya. It was a ramble. The art was pretty cool, no doubt.

    I just realized this may be more of a problem with metblog’s policy. The original request for new bloggers asked for people who can post 3 or more times a week. But I’d rather have people posting one really good post every 2 weeks than have to post whatever they can scrape up to meet the minimum. Sometimes there’s stuff to post about, sometimes there’s not.
