Looking for love online? Or, like us, simply hooked on Hooking Up, ABC's documentary series about online dating that, alas, ends tonight? This is the last in a series of tales, as told to us by a reader, about the good, the bad and the ugly of online dating. Pamela Silberman considers herself a child of the Disney generation.

BOSTON - I am not, by genealogy or nationality, a follower of the British royal family. The last monarch who mattered to Americans was George III, and God knows he made a mess of things. Nevertheless, I find myself hooked on the thoroughly un-fairy tale wedding of Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles scheduled for Friday. I am not quite so besotted that I'm buying the coffee cup, suitable for microwaving, bearing the congratulatory message. But I do have my eye on the refrigerator magnet.

"Beethoven" is the big dog movie, in which Charles Grodin, Mr. Fussy, does battle with the title creature, a 200-pound St. Bernard. Cute, anyone? Rated PG."Thunderheart" puts Val Kilmer on an Indian reservation as an FBI agent in search of a killer, set against the militancy of an A.I.M.-like group called A.R.M. Graham Greene of "Dances With Wolves" also stars. Rated R."Where Angels Fear To Tread" is a consummately produced version of the E.M. Forester novel about an imperious British family which tries to enforce its code of behavior on some unruly Italian relatives, and the chaos and tragedy that follows.

Opera fans have enjoyed a remarkable feast of fresh experiences so far this season served up by the Baltimore Opera Company and Washington National Opera, both presenting an appetizing assortment of works never before staged in this region. Now comes dessert, courtesy of Peabody Opera Theatre, which offers a rare staging of Massenet's Cendrillon. This endearing take on the Cinderella story had a glittering premiere in Paris in 1899 but never worked its way into the standard repertoire.

We are in search of the perfect dress. I say "we" because although my daughter will be wearing it, I am the one with the car keys. The triggering event for this search is the Eighth Grade Social, but this ritual is past due. Among the many things that mothers must convey to their daughters is how to find the perfect dress. But doing this together is less an intergenerational thing than it is a chick thing. Women never search for the perfect dress alone. They always go in pairs. You are less likely to make a disastrous choice if you have someone with you who is enough of a friend to tell you the truth.

According to the Associated Press, "one real-life" junketeer emerged from America's Sweethearts, the new movie about a movie press junket, "sounding more hurt than angry" and asking, "Is that what they think of us?" The advance notices for this piquant, charming movie have been so tepid (or worse) that you have to wonder whether the movie press in general will also react against the picture's spot-on portrayal of journalists as easily manipulated parasites at a big-studio bash. John Cusack and Catherine Zeta-Jones play Eddie Thomas and Gwen Harrison, a hot screen couple whose off-screen marriage is on the rocks.

Fell's Point Corner Theatre is trying something different for the holidays - a British-style pantomime. "Pantos," as they are called, have nothing to do with mimes (although this one does include some actors in whiteface). Instead, these shows are slapstick comedies based on fairy tales and generally feature a couple of characters played in drag. Cinderella, the panto at Fell's Point Corner, actually originated in California. Written in 1999 by Kate Hawley, with music by Gregg Coffin, it includes topical references - some clearly updated here - ranging from Game Boys to Paris Hilton.

Apart from Antonio Banderas' sizzling bout of self-parody as Puss in Boots, who boasts a slashing trademark and Latin bravado akin to Zorro's, Shrek 2 is mostly just dreck squared. With that green-skinned ogre Shrek (Mike Myers) now married to his fetching ogress Princess Fiona (Cameron Diaz), the filmmakers touch on a central idea that should carry a primal kick: What happens when Shrek meets the in-laws - the King and Queen of "the Land of Far Far Away"? But co-writer/co-director Andrew Adamson and his collaborators bury that notion in a slew of sour gags depicting Far Far Away as a combination of Hollywood and Beverly Hills, complete with franchises like Pewtery Barn and upper-crust boutiques like Versarchery.

Any woman who's ever thought that men are another species may recognize the protagonist's predicament in Elizabeth Egloff's The Swan. Egloff, whose Turgenev adaptation The Lover premiered at Center Stage in 1996, also explored the theme of love in The Swan, but this time she's writing about trans-species romance. Part Greek myth, part Swan Lake and part soap opera, the play is mostly bizarre. But it's also wildly funny, rather touching and splendidly acted at Rep Stage in Columbia, under Kasi Campbell's direction.

According to Disney's new hit film, the diary of a princess might read something like this: Used to be a frizzed-out, mousse-deficient, curly-haired geek, then met a man with a blow-dryer who knew how to use it, ditched the curls, and am now completely chic. The princess in question is Mia Thermopolis, brought to life by actress Anne Hathaway in The Princess Diaries, a movie that is drawing teen-age girls to theaters everywhere. It's a typical Cinderella-story film with a controversial message: Anyone can be a princess -- as long as she straightens her hair.

In return, he will not have to sell his soul or cede control. Rather, he will become chief executive of a publicly traded company with a mandate to expand the Silver Diner, the popular Rockville-based restaurant chain he co-founded in 1988."You usually don't have Prince Charming come along and offer you the slipper," said Mr. Giaimo, 44, who now operates six Silver Diners in Maryland and Virginia, including one at Towson Town Center.

When James A. Narutowicz Jr. was growing up, he was often surrounded by beautiful girls. His sister, Anita, older by a year, competed in beauty pageants, and her friends were fixtures at the Narutowicz family's Towson home. Jimmy, as everyone calls him, was particularly struck by Mary Ann Cimino. "I thought she was gorgeous," he says. And he wasn't the only one. In her competition days growing up in Parkville, Mary Ann held a number of titles, including Miss Maryland Teen USA in 1990 and Miss Maryland USA in 1993.
