Piedmont is famous now

Okay, my readers. Zack stole the only computer cord in our house today and took it to work with him, leaving my battery drained computer to die early in the day, before I could post anything. I fully intend to do a full food post any minute (I've got some stored up - just like bears in the winter), but I read this article just now and had to share it with you. Click here.

Did you read it yet? Did you? It's so interesting! It's about food. And Piedmont! My high school, being picked apart in the New York Times. Apparently, chocolate cookies are banned from the food service now. Warm Otis Spunkmeyer cookies are some of my best middle school memories (middle school is a tough time. You understand).

If you choose not to read the article, like an uniformed lazy loser, at least take this sentence away with you - "The Piedmont High water polo team falls woefully short of {nutritional} standards, selling cupcakes, caramel apples and lemon bars off campus in a flagrant act of nutritional disobedience." Best sentence ever! I love it.

I had no idea schools were doing this- I'm really surprised. Actually, my bad Jr. High food habits had a reverse effect: After a year of eating french fries and Coke for lunch, I gave up soda and fries. (Occasionally I will have soda and steal one of my friend's fries :P) But yeah, I shudder to think how I ate in 8th grade during school lunch and what it did to my system. (Home was always healthy.)

Yay nutrition! Although I agree more with the moderation approach. One only needs to look at your Piedmont sugar-free tofu upbringing to realize that totally banning everything sinful only creates more problems.

Healthy food good.
Obese Piedmont kids bad.
Car washes good.
Maybe PHS can qualify for a bailout.
NYTIMES sure seems interested in little Piedmont all of a sudden (recent front page story on football team too).
