Forgive me if this has been asked before but I did the search under Celine Dion, Dion, and Celine and nothing came up so I thought I'd just go ahead and risk it....why is there a Celine Dion section?

Because the former board owner wrote a Celine bio, and a bunch of Celine fans corresponded with her about the book, so she opened a room for them.

When I took over, I kept it, because they're utterly delightful, kind, and gentle folks who make the world a better place and don't take up very much space. :)

I've always wondered about that, too! Thanks for asking, Tate.

Ditto what Wordwrestler said. Thanks for asking, Tate, and thanks for the answer, MacAllister.

Someone told me it was because Mac is a big Titanic fan (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zmbw8OycJrE).

That was far more prosaic an answer than I had presumed it to be.

I'm actually a little disappointed with how straight-forward and unassuming that answer is.

:D

Oh good. Now I have to look up prosaic

I always thought it was a running gag, like Eggplants and Orlando Bloom.

I often wonder about those. I have no idea how they got legs

I was kind of hoping this question would never be answered. It was like my own personal AW mystery. :-P

For some weird reason I assumed it was a joke.

So what is it about eggplants and Orlando Bloom?

(although, anything with Orlando Bloom is okay with me :D )

well hey you could have just ignored this topic all together, but you know deep down inside you wanted to know the answer to this question, don't lie :P

I always thought it was just a gag too, like some place to just be silly. Was always like "out of all the celebs out there why name this thing after Celine Dion?"

Yeah, you weren't here the day after New Year's, were you? Quietest ones are usually the most dangerous. I'm still picking confetti out of the lobby's carpet! Among other places.

I'm glad it's there. I bring it up as an counter example every time someone makes the case that we shouldn't have a political forum because it's "not related to writing."

People interacting with each other, taking stands, voicing opinions, figuring out how the world works and discussing power-grabbing strategies are "not related to writing"?

Dear gods--that kinda takes all the oomph out of fiction, doesn't it?

How disappointing, I thought the answer was going to be a lot more esoteric...

...This reminds me if how I felt when they explained what "the force" was in that God-awful Star Wars prequel...

And Orlando Bloom. But I'd rather not question that part. :e2brows:
