Naughty or nice award

Thank you Gen at Girls and Sunflowers for the blog award!  I certainly don't consider myself naughty, but I don't know if I could be called nice, either.  Let's just say I'm in touch with my sin nature, but trying to obey God, which puts me even more in touch with my sin nature.  It's a viscous cycle.

Anyway, these are the questions I'm supposed to answer.

1. What is the silliest prank you ever played on someone?

I really don't think silly and Celee fit well together in the same sentence.  When I was a little kid and under the influence of the evil neighbor boys, I once pretended to be hurt on the side of the road.  And yes, I felt really bad when someone stopped to ask if I was ok.  I think that may have been my first and last prank.

2. If you could take a trip anywhere out of the country where would you go? Why?

I love to travel, despite the sardonic tone of my travel tales.  I love the adventure of it all.  Our next big trip will be to China- probably in a couple of years, Lord willing (after we finish Sonlight Core 5).  In fact, the kids and I are really excited to start learning Mandarin Chinese next summer using Rosetta Stone.

3. Who plays the most influential role in your life?

My parents and husband. 

4. Are you ok with your significant other being friends with an ex?

No, I think that's weird.  My husband and I don't hang out with people of the opposite sex. 

5. Favorite candle scent?

I have one that smells sort of like caramels.  I'm not a real candle person, I think that one's 6 or 7 yrs old, but it smells really good.

6. Next movie you're excited about seeing?

Toy Story 3.  I'm waiting til it comes out on video.

7. You must ban one word from the dictionary and all usage, to be no longer uttered or written. What word do you ban?

I would like for people not to take the Lord's name in vain.  And I don't like it when people use vulgar words.  However, I wouldn't ban any words from the dictionary.  The problem is not with the words, but with the people who mis-use them. 

8. Do you have any relatives in jail?

Not that I know of, though I may have a few who belong there.

9. What crazy fads were popular when you were a teenager.

Parachute pants and break dancing.  Friendship bracelets and flavored toothpicks.

10. Have you ever been mentioned in a newspaper or on TV?

Yes.  My picture was in the paper for swimming when I was in high school and when I got engaged and then married.  I think that's it.  Now I pretty much just have my obituary to look forward to.

I'm supposed to pass this award on to 10 of my blogging friends unless I'm feeling naughty- in that case I can just pass it on to 5. 

I can tell you right now that all these sweet ladies are nice, not naughty.  I think being nice is a pre-requisite for putting up with me as a friend :).

It's your turn...

I'm an on-the-run mom to 6 kids who studied and taught exercise science in a previous life. I love all things running, nutrition, and health-related. I usually run at zero dark thirty in the morning and am often quite hungry before, during, and after my run, but I live a rich, full, blessed life with my children, family, and friends. My faith in God is my anchor, and looking to Him and His promises allows me to live fully even when life circumstances are difficult. While running gives me an appetite, my desire is to hunger and thirst for righteousness more than for physical food.
