Today's topic is the uncompliment, and how best to respond to it. Admit it - you have experienced the uncompliment. It's the kind of statement that starts out like a compliment, sounds suspiciously like a compliment, but ends up in a place that's definitely not positive. The Janet's World staff of social scientists with nothing better to do has determined that the best way to identify the uncompliment is by timing the awkward pause that hangs in the air after the recipient's response.

Four months ago I got a permanent. The distinctive contour of my individual hairs changed from linear to spiral, as if I suddenly had a whole head full of recombinant DNA.Imagine my surprise when I discovered that the principal effect of the process was that I started behaving like Andy Rooney.I do not mean that, in the aftermath of the hair bending, I started looking like Andy Rooney, who looks like the sale counter at a Fruit of the Loom outlet.What I mean is now I find myself saying: Why do they call it a permanent?

I AM SO TIRED I BARELY HAVE THE energy to write this. For the last three nights I've been up, unable to sleep, just worried sick about two friends who were undergoing corrective cosmetic procedures over the weekend. I should be seeing them both any minute now when they show up for work, and I don't mind telling you that I'm nervous as all heck.I mean, the potential for disaster is great. What if they look so different I don't recognize them? Excuse me, Miss. But you can't sit there, that desk is already taken by someone.

For Judy and Barry Williams of Bel Air, the Christmas season is more than a holiday; it is also the time that they remember and celebrate the adoption of their son, Donald. On Dec. 2, 1993, the couple, in their late 40s, boarded a plane to Russia to adopt a little boy from the region of Perm, about 1,000 miles northeast of Moscow, toward Siberia. The child was in poor health, suffering from severe hip dysplasia that nearly fused the tops of his legs to his hips. He also shared Judy Williams' birthday.

Thirteen years ago, Terry Steele put out an album, King of Hearts, that attempted to establish him as a black Michael Bolton or something. It was embarrassing, a bad idea. The music was maudlin, his image laughable. The dude had a long perm, wore thick makeup and ugly suits with pins, chains and things. He looked like a young Little Richard. "Oh my God, why did you bring that up?" Steele says, laughing.

IN AMERICA, THE stock market slips a few points, and everybody gets chest pains. In Russia, 44 million people live below the poverty line, which is now $37 a month.
