This country of mine has produced some great talent but in an ironic twist of fate, it turns out one of our brightest lights is an expat.
Lily Morgan is one such ray of brilliant sunshine. Admit it, you’re smiling right now, aren’t you?
If you’re interested in smiling ’til it hurts or if she owes you money, you can find Lily at Lily in Canada and if you share her passion for all things animated check out Kidz Showz, where Lily, Tim of Mooselicker fame and Emily of The Waiting write about all the childhood shows they love. Incidentally, Kidzshowz loves guest bloggers, so wrangle your inner child and pump out a guest post for these folks if you can.
But back to the First Annual Lily Morgan Lovefest; she is the girl next door (but not the Elisha Cuthbert ex-porn star version), but with a sassy twist. She is radiance personified. She is positivity embodied. She is paying me to write this.
Simply put, she’s great. Consider this my early Christmas gift to all of you. (Yes, I’m a cheap bugger, but in my defense, its been a bad year for the bellman biz.)
But before we begin, click on the image below, read this piece by Lily and revel in her brilliance.
1) You’ve made my home and native land your headquarters, but is there anywhere else on this great spinning orb we call Earth that you’d like to call home, if only for a little while?
This great spinning orb has offered me a lot of crash pads, but I think my absolute favorites have been my hometown in Chicago suburbia, Canterbury, U.K., and Disney World. The happiest place on Earth should be everyone’s second home…or third home.
2) Jeans, or denim in general, yay or nay?
I know how you Canadians feel about your denim. I’ve definitely become a fan. I think you might even catch me sporting a Canadian tuxedo come spring time.
3) You’re the coolest cartoon gal since Jessica Rabbit, which cartoons still make you feel like a kid perched in front of the tube in your jammies while downing a giant bowl of cereal?
Oh man, I feel like I’ve been a cartoon girl stuck in this human world since a very young age. I used to be (and still am) a fan of every Disney animated feature, but I also love the idea of being a super hero (old school X-Men cartoons were a favorite of mine and my brother). The animated version of The Grinch is one of my favorite holiday-themed cartoons! That one definitely takes me back!
4) This feature exists to lift people’s spirits. What makes Sad Lily perk up and become the Happy Lily we all know and love again?
Money. Haha just kidding. (But seriously…) Sad Lily is never sad for very long. Usually a good buffet will do the trick. Or pizza. And sunshine. And maybe some bad reality TV.
I like how the things that make me feel better are the things that make people want to curl up and die. Maybe I’m mistaking hunger for sadness?
(Nah, you’re just being you.)
5) If you could be any celebrity for a day, who would you be?
Even though she’s not technically a celebrity, I would like to be Kim Kardashian for a day. I just want to know what it feels like to have a padded seat no matter where you go.
And on that note, my friends, I’m going to wrap up another potent shot of positivity. My thanks to Lily for sprucing up my little corner of the web. Take care, and remember to take a little “Me Time” and embrace that inner child, grab a giant bowl of cereal and veg out in front of some old school cartoons for a while.
