somebody's knockin'...

... should I let him in?

So, at 2:46am today, somebody pounded on my front door. Well, I thought I was dreaming it, but it ended with a really loud BAM and woke me up. I wandered around downstairs (accompanied by the attack-cat tatsuko_shikibu looking for Bad Guys, but no one was here.

Did any of y'all stop by for something? I turned on my phone and checked email (stayed up until 5am, dammit), but no one called in emergency tones.

PS: If you need me in the middle of the night, ring the doorbell, then wait a bit, knock, ring again if needed. I wear earplugs...
