For a Sunday morning, our 25-minute wait at the Blue Moon Cafe wasn't bad. In the 6 1/2 years since it opened, this cozy Fells Point cafe has become something of an institution, with customers gladly waiting an hour or more for tables, especially on the weekends. One reason for the wait is that the place is so small, with only 10 tables jammed into its wood-floored, blue-walled space. Another - more important - reason is that Blue Moon fills a niche, serving enormous, dirt-cheap breakfasts that put lots of diner fare to shame.

Some handbags refuse to disappear into the background. Whether dotted with crystals or embellished with embroidery, fashioned from felted wool or finished with tassels, these are bags that are anything but boring, bags that get noticed by strangers for their interesting shape and innovative detail. Some people call them "man magnets," said William Vablais, whose wife, Sheila Holley, designs distinctive wooden box-shaped handbags for their Springfield-Ill.-based company, Once in A Blue Moon.

From a showroom in a squat, brick building in Havre de Grace, with red and white balloons bobbing outside, Bob Rynes sells merchandise no one wants to buy - or even look at. No one wanders into the store, next door to a beauty salon, just to browse. That's OK with "Baltimore Bob," as his supplier has dubbed Rynes, owner of Blue Moon Casket Co., the first casket retail store in Maryland. Rynes opened this month in a carpeted showroom just big enough for a tidy desk and a dozen gleaming caskets sitting side by side, figuring he'll win customers over by saving them money.

You heard it here first: Backstreet Boys will break up in November! Brian and Nick will pursue successful solo careers. Howie will do stand-up comedy and Kevin will hit the lecture circuit. And A.J.'s shot at going solo might make him wish that the group was back together. That noise you just heard? It's the sound of countless young girls fainting at the mere thought of a world without Backstreet Boys. Before panic grips an unsuspecting nation, it's time to confess that this news has not been confirmed by any official sources.

Alex Schmidt has had a crazy month or two. Scarcely back from her honeymoon in Nevis and St. Barts, she'll be dancing the night away tomorrow at the Blue Moon Ball to benefit the League: Serving People with Disabilities. As a member of the Friends of the League, Schmidt has put a lot of hard work into the event, and it's a safe bet that the account executive for the Jewish Times and Style magazine will be putting just as much hard work into her big-band swing moves. That Schmidt, a veteran of both Chanel and Armani PR departments, will be making those moves in haute designer style, is a given.

The blue moon is the second full moon to shine in a single month. This doesn't happen too often - therefore, the expression "once in a blue moon."The Blue Moon Dining House, opened just two months ago in Fells Point, is a rare find worthy of its name. It serves modestly priced breakfast, lunch and dinner and is especially adept at the morning meal. Ethereal biscuits, gooey cinnamon rolls and crisp hash browns are certainly "heavenly bodies."Blue Moon's menu is printed with the command, "Support our space program," the front door bears a poster for the Hubble Space Telescope, and the bathroom is home to a cool glow-in-the-dark moon.

Look to the sky! For one moment tonight near midnight the moon will be "blue." If the sky is clear and you see it, don't expect strange happenings. Don't expect it to actually be the color blue, though that has been known to happen now and then.The blue moon does not provoke weird behavior in man or beast, any more than any other full moon. Astronomically, it is as predictable as the rising of the sun. Meteorologically, it can signal disaster. As a metaphor, it describes two conditions: absurdity and rarity.

The eclipse is back.After going without a total lunar eclipse visible from Maryland back yards during all of 1994 and last year, stargazers will be treated to a pair of them in 1996. Clean up the lawn chairs and set aside the evenings of April 3 and Sept. 26.No solar eclipses will be visible here in 1996, and only two will be visible anywhere. Both are partial, and you'll have to spend the mortgage money to get somewhere to see them.The rest of the year, is sprinkled with celestial events visible here (weather permitting)

ON MONDAY there will be a rare celestial event: the second new moon of the month. It makes me think of the blue moon -- the second full moon of a month -- that appeared around this time last year.It was then that I fell in love for the second time in 30 years. I let my scarred heart be scooped up by a lovely, brown-eyed girl of grace and charm, just like in the old song.At the start of our relationship, she told me something I didn't know: "Once in a blue moon, two people fall in love," she said.
