I am doing very well. I hope you are as well. It's funny, when I heard the rumors of what the "L" name would be I was thinking Lollipop & of course on queue I thought of the 50's song Lollipop. Imagine they play the song while they introduce Android 5.0 Lollipop. That would be so killer I think... Google has a great since of humor, so I definitely couldn't put it past them.

They usually look for popular names of sweets, so lollipop is a no brainer but it will be more about the features than the actual name

They could have gone with Lion after KitKat ;)

Yeah. Then it be a huge blowup with Apple taking them to court for patent and copyright infringement.
