I wanted to let everyone know that you can follow my current blog at ideabloke.com as I’ve decided to go with self-hosted WordPress. Also wanted to apologize for not giving you a heads up earlier, but please follow me there instead, as I will no longer be using the WordPress.com platform.
I’ll see you there, cheers!
So today was a great example of me being derailed. Intentions are great to have, but when they aren’t met, they take on the status of a moral victory. And when this happens, you take what you can get.
In this case I opted to get some pho. That’s right. Found myself in SE Portland and remembered a Fox Channel 12 expose one morning about this place, @Pho.com on the corner of 82nd & Powell that was just phenom. Couldn’t help but notice on my way in that this place was Google Recommended, so that never hurts.
Met the owner, Jasmine, who I swear smiles all the time! Their motto is: “With a lovely smile and healthy foods!” so they deliver on the smile, but I was a little uncertain on just how “healthy” pho can be. I tell you, it’s just downright delicious.
The decor was nicely done, too. I’d probably describe it as “smart asian” (is there such a thing?), what with lanterns & bamboo decor. Good for dates, I would imagine.
Anyway, if anyone’s in the area and has a hankering for some pho, give me a holler. In the meantime, I’ve got to regroup and focus.
