"I Have a Lot of Male Friends"

That's a quote from the ultimate Diva, Joan Collins. I love that line. The icon of the 1980s was at Borders Boston for a booksigning today. Kudos to Joan, who at age 74 still draws a crowd. The lunchtime line was way too long to wait for an autographed copy of her new book The Art of Living Well. The crew in line was a hoot - not what I expected at all (as evidenced by the man in the Patriots windbreaker leaning in for a photo.) Joan was rocking the fur hat and the large silver cross and seemed to be enjoying herself. Rock on Alexis Carrington - you still rule.

Joan Collins and Linda Evans are also in town for a few performances of Legends! at the Schubert Theater. The ladies are in the middle of a 30-city tour. The play has not been particularly well-reviewed, but peeps don't mind - they just want to see Alexis and Krystal live and in person.

Speaking of Divas, Toby Bloomberg of the Diva Marketing Blog sent along the cute clip of the day. Given that my day was a bit of a WTF Friday - I needed kitten video therapy. I believe the phrase I'm thinking of is "screw you if you don't like kitten video." Toby is actually doing a social media experiment and wants to see how YouTube clips move from 34 views to featured clips with tens of thousands of hits. Check out the video and see what you think.
