I had a good reason, as a long-lost friend from high-school is finally out of the army and was back in town visiting, so he, ox_number_10, and myself sat around bullshitting (mostly him sharing stories of military life over in Iraq and other places he went to) till far too late.
And I'm meeting him tonight after class for some more visitation. Hopefully I can wake up by then. He's heading back out of town friday, back to his current abode in So.Cal. I have various bits of info, though, with which to maintain contact far better than I did last time.
