You are receiving this blog post from the future!
Okay, not really, but it just went live and I’m nowhere near BCI headquarters in sunny Simi Valley. Right about now I’ve probably made it to my hotel in the Big Apple after my red eye flight and am taking a quick catnap before my week-long family vacation extravaganza explodes into a storyline befitting the Griswolds.
