How about way later, way somewhere else, if at all

i(ru), o(ru)
meaning: be, reside

居住 == kyojuu  == dwelling
居所 == idokoro == whereabouts 

Left/upper radical is 'slumped person'. Bottom/right radical is 'old' (古), acting phonetically to express 'crouch'. This character originally meant 'person staying in crouched position'. It came to mean 'staying in one place', and thence to its present meaings. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Old person sitting slumped is at home.'
