KB(CO)!

December 4, 2010

KBCO is a local radio station and every year on the first Saturday of December they put out a CD full of unplugged songs recorded in the famous Studio C.  There’s a limited supply of CDs so every year my mom and I line up at 6 A.M. and wait the two hours till the sales begin at 8 A.M.  Joey has joined us the past 3 years.  Sometimes it snows, sometimes it rains, sometimes it’s just bitter cold and it’s always always dark.

Hence the nice flash picture.

I’ve mastered the art of layering over the years and this year we actually remembered chairs and a blanket.

Starbucks is ALWAYS consumed.

Really though, I don’t even go for the CD.  It’s a two CD per person limit so I give mine up to my mom.  I go for the tradition.  Some years we make friends in line, some years we get in fights with people trying to cut in line and sometimes we listen to Joey make jokes about how I wear gloves that look like they came from Baby Gap but we ALWAYS have fun.

And despite the fact that I’m running on 5 hours of sleep and my toes are still slightly numb (I even wore 3 pairs of socks AND Uggs!!) I look forward to this tradition every year 😀

A few food highlights from yesterday:

I also ran for the first time in what felt like forever but was really only since last Thursday.  My dad has diagnosed my knee pain as IT band related so I took it slow and easy and walked in between each mile and felt zero pain during or since (fingers crossed!!).  Do I smell a half marathon in New Orleans in February??  We’ll see.

Ciao for now!

    And from the balmy South (High in the mid 70’s yesterday), I appreciate all that you do and suffer through so that I may be the recipient of another Studio C CD.

    I am obviously way behind on posts, but I needed to comment on this one. I heart KBCO and had no idea they do this! I bet the cd is so freaking good! You can never ever go wrong with Studio C. 🙂
