    Hi Rod and Karen,

    Thank you for sharing your journeys with us, of Rod’s move to NYC and getting acclimated to the new location and the new job, and Karen’s adjusting to the cook being out of the house and dealing with the issues back home, (though my chicken thighs recipe is still the one Karen gave me!), plus the both of you dealing with being apart. Hope Karen is able to visit soon!

    Rod, following on to a recent tweet I sent, one of the big issues with shopping in NYC is that stores have much less space here so they don’t have as many items in stock. I call Best Buy, Can’t Buy because they almost never have what I want in stock.

    As with CVS and Walgreens/Duane Reade, with Best Buy you can see what they have in stock at a particular store on their web site before you waste your time going there. With Walgreens and Best Buy, you can also order and pay online for pick-up so *they* find the items instead of you having to wander the aisles. Amazon Prime 1-day shipping is also your friend!

    Speaking of which, shipping to NYC apartments is a pain, as you’ve noted — if the item(s) are not bulky or heavy, having them sent to your office works well. But if they have a policy against it or you just don’t want to do that, Amazon has a bunch of “locker” locations where you can pick up packages. The items need to be shipped by Amazon to have that option during checkout.

    This ended up longer than I expected so I’ll sign off now, all the best to both of you!!!!!!! 🙂

    Well, you got to me. You did it. I was finally shamed enough to sit my black behind down and write a 5-star review on Apple podcasts. I tried to write one a while ago and somehow messed it up. Don’t know how I did that because it is super easy to leave a review. Being Black, Southern and Catholic, I know shame (done correctly) works. Karen would have been a perfect sister at the Black Catholic elementary school my brother went attended!

    I am, well was, one of the triflin’, unwashed who would write in about how much I loved you guys but didn’t write a review. I had been feeling guilty for months about not leaving y’all a review. Given how hard y’all work, the excellent podcasts you produce, and how much I love, love, love listening to you, you deserve all the 5-star reviews!

    Now the guilty feeling has been washed away. What I do feel now, though, is judgmental. Now I too can give every comment-writing listener who hasn’t also left a review, a nice side-eye and “tsk tsk” while shaking my head. Deep down I knew I wasn’t like those other kneegrows.

    Seriously love y’all. Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. HBO. I am so excited for you both and I am grateful to go on this journey with you and the community you built-even if y’all do have me laid out on the floor crying while listening to how much you both love and support each other!

    Sorry I can’t stop commenting today. We had a big wave of African refugees about 5 years ago I had parental leave and helped some of them with learned the language and burocracy stuff. I learned from them that there are significant black Jewish communities in Africa. https://m.jpost.com/diaspora/jews-of-africa-communities-you-likely-know-nothing-about-650321

    Thank you for clearing up my last dragon confusion.
    In Raya the last dragon Awkwafina is the voice of the dragon that’s why I really wasn’t sure.
    I recommend this movie and think you might like it.

    About race records in Germany: Karen got it right. Race records were used to send people to concentration camps so maybe it’s better not to use them.
    I personally think that keeping race records can be very harmful even if I know in your country is also used for good. ( scholarships and other support? And to see where there are problems. I hope I’m right? ) In the US as far as I know it’s also used for very evil like making it harder for black people to vote or for right wing propaganda.

    The toad would would turn into the prince? That’s even worse.
    How should I explain to my husband that a price is living with us now? And the one doing laundry here. So more work? Na
