If most my posts are about divulging my nerdistic tendencies this one is pretty up there. I've slowly become fascinated by Disguised Cell Towers over the years, especially ones disguised as trees. There are a few in a row off the 110 Fwy, just North of the 405. There's even a palm tree version a bit further up. Decided to try to look at one up close. I had my aluminum foil cap and lead underwear on.
You know how you sometimes get off the freeway needing gas and of all the exits you could've taken you end up taking the one that the station is the furthest and most out the way??..... Well I did the Cell Tower version of that this day.
...so close and yet so far...
It looked so easy to get to from the freeway damn it. And this was after a few blocks of driving through a desolated looking industrial park mind you. Finally found a way to get a close up through a patch of land owned by this city for public maintenance works.
Not shown is the padlocked chained fence I managed to limbo dance under. I can convince myself that I'm quite flexible when the right island music is playing on my iPod.
Wow what a beauty. Cutting Edge Cell Tower Technology meets Reusable Christmas Tree technology. I know many may think it's ugly (and I won't disagree) but I'm fascinated by them... (New label tag worthy!)
I remembered passing by this Wonder/Hostess 'Bakery Thriftshop' and checked in mostly because the signage looked so awesome. I mean come on, you gotta love this..
Wonder Bread central. It's a distribution center and they don't make the loaves here. I didn't look carefully but I imagine they're close to passing the due date and so considerably marked down.
$0.85 a loaf. I'm suddenly craving an Egg Salad Sandwich.
Dang, I should've made an offer for that framed panoramic donut/coffee/fresh strawberries picture below. I want it BAD.
$1.29 for an eight-pack of Hostess Cup Cakes. That's eight cents a cup cake. A no take since I don't have the slightest bit of a sweet tooth.
Forgot to ask about the slim jims behind it though. Darn it.
