ah, ok, thanks guys, I guess it's possible it took that long and I see that's the ~38 minus ~ 34 in the data strings. thanks! I'll have to do some investigating to see why it took so long--it's normally not much over a minute.
I just did a cold boot and it took just 1:10. It might have been slow before because I had a USB drive hooked up--something I seldom leave connected. I'm not gonna worry about the issue so we can consider this "solved".
