Only in reference to the musical. On April 6 the national touring company starts a 16 show run in Fresno so I expect to be hearing "wicked" a lot for the next month.

The country is spelled C-O-L-O-M-B-I-A. The university in New York City and the movie company is spelled "Columbia".

Yes, I am tired too of the colloquial "Cali" to refer to the state.

I know Walmart and Target are pretty formidable and authoritative sources, but I'm not going to call CA "Cali" until the Internet's ultimate authoritative source Wikipedia states that "Cali" is okay.

And let's not forget the Columbia river at the Oregon/Washington border.

I wonder if Colombia has any rivers named ... ... ... oh never mind!

That song was originally written by LL Cool J in the 80's and before you ask he's from New York. Remember what I said about out of staters?

I think what is confusing people, myself including until the middle part of this thread, is that in English it is spelled Columbia as in British Columbia but in Spanish it's Colombia. Heck, it's even the District of Columbia (as in our capital) and there are several towns and neighborhoods (including one in the city I live in) named Columbia so it's an easy and understandable mistake to make.

Red face How'd it go?

Hi,
I just recently decided to move to San Diego in about a little over a year from now and i was just wondering how your transition went for you? Im from Milwaukee, WI, so i get the whole weather changing thing and i just have always felt that CA ( id say Cali but god forbid that starts a pointless up roar. ) was the place for me to be at. I hope to save enough money to get me started down there altho i am in still in school and only 21. Id just like someones input whos done the whole "pack it up and just go" type of thing. Thanks! =)
