The Mainland 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?

TG, you don't have to concern yourself about having a southern drawl. The fact is I have one too. Only mine is from southern Brooklyn.

I know this may sound like a silly one but when I go to the fish store I'm afraid to ask for plecos because im unsure how to say it properly.

I just call them fungus eaters

PL-ek-O?
