I've Never Been One to Toot My Own Horn, But, "BEEP BEEP"


Aside from the fact that we were totally neighbors when I lived in New Orleans, the celebrity whose life most closely mirrors mine has and always will be Angelina Jolie.  I'm in a long-term relationship, living with the man of my dreams, (and by 'long-term' I mean 'non-existent' and by 'with the man of my dreams' I mean 'alone in the basement of a married couple in their sixties') have scads of children who love me and each other (and by 'children who love me and each other' I mean 'zits on my chin and cheek area'), hmmmm....what else?



Angelina and I have so much in common.  She is comfortable around snakes...





...I am comfortable around snakes:








She looks amazing in a bikini in a waterfall...




...I look amazing in a bikini in a waterfall.





She goes to Cambodia and wears no makeup...






...I go to Cambodia and wear no makeup.  









Today, though, we truly have more in common than ever.



...we have both appeared in Forbes Magazine.


She, for her Celebrity 100 status and I, for the lil' appearance I made in an article about ladies who travel solo.




 "...I knew I wanted to bring in the big guns. I consulted some of the web’s most savvy solo female travelers for their perspective on why going it alone is not as daunting as it seems, their best advice for women taking the vacation-for-one  plunge and what makes their personal travel highlight reel."






I'd like to thank my mom...

Get it?

GIRL, you always CRACK ME UP. I freaking miss you and call for a China reunion. You are HILARIOUS.

Chris said...

You forgot to mention about your fabulously successful fame and then there's something similarly voluptuous about your lips! And I'm not 60!!!!

Megs said...

Pop that leg! The difference is: She seems to be devoid of a sense of humor and you are flipping hilarious.

Congrats on Forbes!

When I refer to you to someone that doesn't know you, I have always said, "Kady's the one, that everything about her is EXACTLY like Angelina Jolie". Now, I don't have to say that, but "You know, Kady's the one that was in Forbes!"
Kady, girl, Forbes!!! Oprah with "O" will be calling next..and you and her have even more similarities. Loved the post!

Love, it's never lady like to toot your own horn. I surely never do that, however, perhaps my husband, Richard, could do a little honk for you. Forbes, you say? You know people of substance in the community are probably queueing to ring you at this very moment. I believe I would like to invite you to tea to meet my handsome son, Sheridan. The both of you would be a smashing hit!

Hobo Siren said...

Morgan said...

Kady, I just went to Forbes.com (okay that sounds weird for me)anyway, I was excited because:
1: I searched Kady Hexum on Forbes website and YEP, you're right on there.
2: You are referred to as WRITER..not blogger or poop-girl, but writer!
3: I think you're in the big girl crowd now..you may even be asked to be in a movie.

Roxie (again)
P.S. I just read online today that the reason they think Angelina popped her leg out like that is because she is hiding a baby bump..she wanted to take the attention off of it. Your "Thank You" photo also has an eerily resemblance to having a bump under that housecoat. You really nailed that pose!

Devia -- thanks! I had to take it seventeen times before I got my head in the picture. (Self-timer.)

Kellie -- I miss you too! Love reading about your adorable kids. I feel like I know them and I'm their auntie. Is that weird?

Chris -- I'll never know how to properly apologize for that one. Attention everyone, the wife of this married couple is in her fifties. FIFTIES.

Megs -- what a compliment. Thank you.

Roxie and Hyacinth -- I love both of you. When I'm on Oprah I'll wiggle my ear and that will be your signal that I'm saying hello to only you. What? Oprah's not on anymore? GUH...

Sarah and Hobo -- I'm jealous of myself.

Morgan -- thanks!

Jess -- welcome to the stupidest blog you're ever going to read.
