There’s a butter gingerbread house peeking through the refinery basins. An out of place dwelling reminding me that all eras and styles of design must merge; the essence of past centuries meet in the present. A chemical acridness fades at the refineries as residents don’t comprehend efficient and green technology used to refine oil today; people forget merging the old and new is a necessity for future change.

I am a cow, a cow I am; don’t think —

I don’t know you’re using me for my milk.

My friends out their in the pasture they think,

They’ll never be rendered into meat.

But the older cows who you milk don’t blink,

They know where fattened cows go too soon.

I’m told not to worry, with a wink,

I am a milk cow, that isn’t my fate.

I’ll live a long life as long as I give,

Thick liquid to use in many foods ate.

As long as there’s butter, yogurt I live.

As long as there’s cream, cheeses galore.

I’m a free cow until old age arrives,

Then I’m certain I just might be beef.

Rejuvenated


Prompt: Tell us about the last experience you had that left you feeling fresh, energized, and rejuvenated. What was it that had such a positive effect on you?

It’s a bit cliche but the place I feel most fresh, energized, and rejuvenated is the spa. Mind, you not getting my hair done, that ranks right up there with one of the most stressful experiences you can have. But I enjoy going to my favourite spa The Beauty Lounge and getting a massage and facial. Even though a massage maybe a tad hurtful at the the time it is so worth it when you walk out of the spa and your joints and muscles are as butter, loose, slippery, and melting. And a facial is just wonderful too, having your skin deep cleaned and ending with a facial that smells like peaches.

Another set of procedures I like to have done are a manicure, pedicure, and bikini wax. Now you may ask how can waxing be rejuvenating? Well since, I’m use to it and have been doing it for about twelve or thirteen years it hardly hurts, less hair has grown back, and I just feel cleaner with that part of my body done in a regular bikini wax. As for a manicure and pedicure, sitting in that massaging chair is bliss with a green tea. I can pick whatever colour I like and regular nail polish always lasts longer — it especially lasts longer if the mani/pedi is done in gel nails because those last about 3 weeks. I don’t have to worry about any of the steps of a mani/pedi myself someone looks after me and we talk girl talk!

Just to mention, a smart way to go about getting your nails etc done is to wait for deals on groupon or sign up for the store newsletter. I usually get a great deal that way and if every once and awhile I pay full price for a facial, it’s worth it!
