And your backside didn't look so great, either. Now take off, Mr. Carrot-Top, Mr. Dump-Us-After-One-Lousy-Year, Mr. Hope-You-Choke-On-Your-Emmy . . .(Calm down. Breathe deeply. Now, start over.)Seriously, we all want to wish David Caruso the best darn luck in the movies. Mr. Caruso played Det. John Kelly on the most highly acclaimed drama on television, "NYPD Blue." With all the media fanfare of, say, someone leaving in a white Bronco, Mr. Caruso is leaving "NYPD Blue" after one season.He wants to make movies and more money.

This frail doddering beast we call civilization takes another kick in the groin in the savagely disappointing "House Party 3," featuring the heretofore amusing rappers Kid 'n Play.The two young men (Christopher Reid and Christopher Martin) have been agreeable presences in the first two items in this series, particularly the first, which was directed by Reginald Hudlin and had a sly, off-handed charm to it.The second was unmemorably routine. This one is actually offensive.Basically conceived as lame farce, it watches as the decent, about-to-be-married Kid tries to assemble a bachelor's party for himself on the eve of the ceremony.

Q: I'm 31, never been married, but want to be. She's 33, divorced seven years, with a child. We met at the gym and get along extremely well, with common interests and backgrounds.Things went well for the first few weeks, but now she has a child-support case coming up, and the closer it comes, the more withdrawn and cold she becomes. She won't touch or kiss me. This happened overnight. And now she's beginning to make excuses for not seeing me. She has totally withdrawn from everyone.After three weeks of this, I was convinced she didn't want to see me, but I couldn't get her to say it. I felt crushed by her actions and when I asked her about them, she would say there's nothing to talk about.

Calm down.Forget that the Maryland men are ranked No. 7 in the country. Forget their upset of Massachusetts in last season's NCAA tournament. Forget they even made the Sweet 16.Hoops to hype, hype to hysteria.Let these kids breathe.Calm down.The Terps might indeed be the seventh-best team in college basketball. They might even be better than that. But the expectations are growing rather suffocating, don't you think?Ten minutes of basketball, that's what the AP ranking is based on. Ten amazing minutes against Massachusetts.

COLLEGE PARK -- Gary Williams visits his doctors tonight."I'm sure they'll tell me I can coach," Williams said. "If they don't, it doesn't matter."He's back!Same old spunk.Same old fire.Same old Gary Williams.What did you expect, Mr. Mellow?Williams is going to yell. Williams is going to scream. Williams is going to coach his team."I'm over 21," he said last night. "What are they going to do?"All right, he's still not 100 percent. He needs to gain back 10-12 pounds. And he needs to take this day by day, lest he get run down again.
