Five simple fucking ingredients in this bitch right here. This is some good shit to make when you are feeling bougie as fuck. High-fructose corn syrup? Naw son, I don’t play that. Hit this with some vodka though, different story. Max relax.
5 cups of water
1/2 -3/4 cup sugar (yeah, it is fucking lemonade. without the sugar it is just real sour fucking water)
3/4 cup Meyer lemon juice, about 6 lemons (you can just use the regular lemons at the store too, not a dealbreaker)
juice of half a lime
4 sprigs of fresh lavender
Bring the water to a boil in a medium pot. Add the sugar and simmer that shit on a low heat for about 5 minutes. Make sure to stir it on the regular. The sugar should be all dissolved in the water by now with no little fucking grains rolling around in there. Turn off the heat and stir in the lemon juice, lime juice, and lavender. Let it cool until it is around room temperature. Take the lavender pieces out but use a fucking spoon and not your fingers if you are going to serve that shit to other people. Put the lemonade in the fridge to cool down all the way. Serve with lemon wedges and a pinch of dried lavender if you want it to look fucking impressive.
makes about 1 quart of chill the fuck out
Here’s a response I wrote on this article on Deadline Detroit, which seemingly has been removed:
This op-ed just sounds bitter. I mean, are we really trying to have an Office Space-esque discussion of “What, exactly, do you do here?!”?
I think people who read can understand what Dandelion does, Lorimer-verbosity be damned. There isn’t anything really wrong with their website copy. It is focused on a particular audience. If you don’t like what you see, then it is not likely for you. Semantics exists, but that doesn’t seem to be a real interest here.
On top of that, it seems Lorimer is getting business. He employs people; people who obviously understand what they do day-to-day. If we want to know how that happens, why doesn’t someone just ask them?
Yes, the initial driver of the meme is relevant and was amusing. Was it bad for business? That’s up to Lorimer to address. The focus of this piece doesn’t really do anything to add to the discussion.
This made me wonder how you earned your standing in being able to waste my time. A part of me wanted to not respond and pray this would get placed in the vacuous crap pile, but I felt it right to highlight inanity of this. That’s why you wrote this, right? Hopefully Dandelion’s stakeholders are smiling at this comment. Many of us know news pubs can use all the help they can get.
I should just leave this alone, but I spent the time on it. It should be seen.
