Hmmm, it does mention a printer once, and it's vid & pid match the id of the device highlighted blue in the lsusb output I posted above... Do you think that tells us anything?
using `dmesg | grep lp` outputs a few hundred entries of the following line
[32858.320354] usb 5-1: usbfs: interface 0 claimed by usblp while 'usb' sets config #1
I wonder if that corresponds to the number of times I've unplugged it and plugged it back in
and these entries appear consecutively in the middle, looks like is referring to the printer:
[31717.820323] usblp 5-1:1.0: no reset_resume for driver usblp?
[31717.820503] usblp0: removed
[31723.389669] usblp0: USB Bidirectional printer dev 2 if 0 alt 1 proto 2 vid 0x067B pid 0x2305

If this tells you anything else I could check on, I would appreciate the advice! Thanks a bunch for responding in the first place.
