    Middle O' Nowhere, Nb

    There's, like...nothing to do in this town. The only reason why I'm here is because I work at the call centre five minutes' walk from here. (It's a call centre company whose purpose is to provide work to rural areas, basically.) It's quite boring. I wish I was living in Miramichi...
