Mindy Kaling and little Twitter Triumphs

What a lovely way to start my day (which actually started 7 hours ago, but this is my first Twitter check-in -- by the way, I have been getting up so early and was therefore so tired last night that I fell asleep on the toilet -- and I wasn't even going number two! ok, TMYI, sorry).

Thank you for following me, Mindy. That's sweet and awesome. And, name-drop-central, Hi Tobey and Jen -- how have you guys been? And Pharrell -- it's been ages! I think the biggest ongoing name-drop of my life is my Mom; I reference her way more often than necessary, think of the word Mom as always starting with an initial cap and tell her cool stories as though they reflect well on me. I've done this since I was a kid, as if it held some cache to throw into a conversation some vaguely-semi-related story about my Mom. In my 30s, a good friend from college told me it was also unusual how many times a day I called her.

My Mom doesn't do the Twitter thing or she could really thrill me by following me. In the meantime, thank you, again, Mindy, for the name-drop opp.

How often do y'all talk to your moms, if you do? How are you in general?
