    tony: happy birthday karisa!! 

    karisa: thank you, tony!

    karisa: i loved your story on your website :-)

    karisa: thank you!

    tony: you did?!

    tony: good

    tony: i was hoping you wouldnt hate it

    karisa: haha- not at all!

    karisa: that pic is wicked funny.

    tony: when i think of you, thats normally the spirit that i think of

    karisa: haha- good!

    karisa: that makes me happy.

    tony: can i interview you quickly for the blog?

    karisa: what are you going to ask?

    tony: simple things

    karisa: ok- it is going to be a slow day- so you can interview me if you would like.

    tony: yay!

    tony: now that youre 80 years old

    tony: what was your favorite memory of being 79?

    karisa: hmmmm….

    karisa: well, there were a few things!

    karisa: falling in love with my hot boyfriend….

    karisa: getting the drunkest ever in mass and taking a limo to boston to see the red sox- and later dancing on tables and running through fountains and body shots….

    karisa: seeing my bro get married…

    tony: very nice

    tony: how many times (approximately) have you been in vegas over the last 122 months?

    karisa: at least 30 (that i can remember)…

    karisa: maybe 35….

    karisa: but some trips could count as two ;-)

    tony: cuz you partied that hard?

    karisa: haha- yeah. or just got to do so many amazing things during one trip.

    tony: is hard rock still your favorite place to party there?

    karisa: i like the hard rock- and it has a cool vibe- but i think the most important thing is who you are partying with and what you make of it when you are there.

    tony: is ghost bar still the coolest bar there?

    karisa: haha- no- it is only cool if your company rents it out and it is free and ‘no-hassle’ to get in. ‘rain’ is very cool- but you have to work major magic for entry!

    karisa: any club that you can work your way into (jumping the long lines) is cool ;-)

    tony: what was the best book you read this year?

    karisa: middlesex was very cool b/c it was so well written… ‘wicked‘ was fun until the end…. when i think the author got bored and just stopped lending to the story…. i really liked voltaire too…. i really liked so many books this year that i read… it is hard to say in one sentence!

    tony: did last year convince you that the red sox are truly cursed?

    karisa: no. that was strictly bad coaching on grady little’s part. we SHOULD have won that game. i think it was fixed ;-) since my bro has 1918 tatooed on his arm now- i think this will be the year ;-)

    tony: should grady have been fired?

    karisa: yes.

    karisa: definitely.

    tony: your close friends know about your aversion to blood… will you ever see the Passion of the Christ?

    tony: will you rent it?

    karisa: i get queasy watching south park the other night. and that is a cartoon.

    tony: damn, i didnt know it was that bad

    tony: did they have fake blood?

    karisa: haha- i hope it wasn’t real! ;-)

    tony: but it was a bloody scene?

    karisa: just they typical kenny slaughter.

    tony: ahahaha

    tony: what are your top two goals for this year?

    tony: other than see me nude

    tony: again

    karisa: hahah! well, aside from that…. ;-) that is a lot to think about….

    tony: maybe youre life is perfect all of a sudden?

    karisa: some lady stopped me on hollywood blvd on friday and was doing a survey…. and she asked me my biggest fear in life….

    karisa: which i told her was too loaded of a question for my friday afternoon!

    karisa: i don’t know if i have any goals. i want things…. i guess.

    karisa: i want to see my family in vegas in a couple of weeks….

    karisa: i want to go to new york this summer…..

    karisa: i want to run everyday and wear a bikini at the beach (and look good in it)…

    karisa: i want to take some classes…

    karisa: i want to write to my friends more…

    karisa: i want to be able to save even $5…..

    karisa: are those goals, btw?

    tony: yes

    tony: good ones too

    karisa: i don’t even know how to define them anymore!

    tony: i suddenly have a new goal of seeing you look “good” in a bikini this summer now too

    karisa: haha- whatever! ;-)

    tony: other than the busblog, what other websites/blogs do you frequent daily?

    karisa: websites???

    tony: yes

    tony: thats the last question

    karisa: i have a lot of ‘free time’ at work so i could literally name about 500…..

    tony: one final last quesiton

    tony: judging from the new beastie boys single

    tony: how do you think the new record will be?

    karisa: i love the beasties- and i don’t want to talk smack at all… i think that if they bring it back to the old school that it will be awesome ;-)
