Now that's a term that makes me feel at home. I too am from an island only I'm on the total and complete opposite end of the country. (Nantucket, Massachusetts) and when I refer to "the Mainland" to people living there they usually crack up and make fun.
We also call it, "America" and "off the rock".
Just to stay on topic...
still no one knows how to pronounce Colisa Lalia?
