Don't beat yourself up. You're not the first Orioles fan to let down your guard and make yourself vulnerable again. You're not going to be the last, and you're certainly not alone. Mark Teixeira seemed too perfect. He was the homegrown superstar everyone had been waiting for since Cal Ripken Jr. retired. He was the guy the Orioles missed by a few draft choices in 2001, and, admit it, that was when you started counting the days until he would be eligible for free agency. Along the way, you idolized him and assumed he felt the same way about you. In reality, he hardly gave you a second thought.

Bungalow Bill Clinton, Lady Monica, Linda Day Tripper, Polythene Paula and all the other fools on the Hill certainly got into a mess this past year.And paperback writers Andrew Morton, Michael Isikoff and George Stephanopoulos all did their best to cash in with their own sordid chronicles of the Clinton-Lewinsky saga.But last week's cover of the New York Times Book Review was surely the most artful statement on the incident so far. A parody of the Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band album cover, it substituted scandal figures for the Fab Four and famous historical faces.

As they counted down the days, they ticked matters of the most crucial variety off their lists. Tickets? Check. Limo? Check. Outfit? Oh, sister, so totally checked and double checked. For women, the Sex and the City premier weekend wasn't so much a movie as a reunion - a long-awaited get-together with Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda, one that they simply could not experience without their own best friends. Mary McBride, a 32-year-old from Annapolis who saw the movie Saturday with her three best friends, is going again Friday - with more friends.

FEELING BLUE about Cal Jr. being shifted to third? You already miss brother Billy, who is returning to Texas to play baseball? Still steamed about announcer Jon Miller's departure? You can get a pick-me-up -- an orange-and-black blood transfusion -- in Aberdeen. The Ripken Museum has just opened there in an old stone portion of City Hall.This is a fine boutique gallery. It accommodates only 35 visitors at a time. But the architect got the most he could from limited space.The museum was formed by civic leaders in Aberdeen -- where Cal Jr., his brothers and sister were raised and his parents still live -- as well as the Ripkens and their associates.

While snorkeling with his kid in Hawaii, President Clinton found himself in one of those no-win situations that politicians hate.He was taking a brief vacation, which he surely deserved. Since taking office only a few months ago, he's been on a grueling schedule filled with controversy and difficult decisions.After his trip to Japan, with the pressures of dealing with other world leaders, jet lag and eating raw fish, he wanted to spend a few days unwinding with his family on a beach or playing golf.

It's beach season. In these parts, that means negotiating traffic to the other shore with friends and coolers in tow. Memorial Day weekend, summer's first official three days of downtime, is a chance to unwind and frolic, so there's no place in the duffel bag for head-to-toe outfits. Glamour looks are for luxury hotel vamps who wear their diamonds and pearls at poolside.Beach togs should be water-friendly, comfortable and inexpensive, because they take sand-and-sun abuse and seldom survive more than one season of playtime.

NEW YORK - She's the type of girl with a penchant for bombshell red lipstick and skirts so short they tease the world with flashes of her behind. She favors dresses that encase her heaving bosom in striking satin cups and never wakes up before noon, when she languorously slips into a silk kimono and reaches for her first martini and cigarette. And she will steal your boyfriend. Just before the Spring 2003 Fashion Week ended Monday, a decidedly different woman emerged on the runways from the ruffles- and pastel-loving girls of the earlier shows.

The most striking thing inside American Apparel T-shirt shops might not be the clothes. It might be the labels that say "Made in USA." Manufacturing jobs in general, and apparel-making jobs in particular, have been moving to cheaper plants overseas for decades. But Los Angeles-based American Apparel has thrived by defying that trend. The company appeals to U.S. customers who want to be hip and don't want their clothes to carry "Made in China" labels - a tag hard to avoid these days. American Apparel avoids mainstream malls, models and press, and offers good pay and benefits to workers who churn out 210,000 basic T-shirts a day for adults, kids and dogs, and sells its clothing online and in 57 global stores.

Time was when the term "golf fashion" was an oxymoron.Golf clothes, those geeky plaid ensembles seemingly designed for old codgers, were about as unfashionable as divots on a putting green.And who, except those who actually knew how to blast their way out of a sand trap, really wanted to walk around looking like a golfer anyway?But that was all B.T. -- Before Tiger.Since the young golf sensation Tiger Woods drove, chipped and putted his way to superstardom, breaking records, drawing huge galleries, winning the Masters, all of sudden, the look of the links is more than just hip.

Artist Agency.The Sun regrets the errors.We have at least a couple of months before it's necessary to shed the comforting camouflage of bulky winter clothes.But once you begin calculating the amount of time necessary to drop those extra pounds, trim those thighs and flatten that tummy, the swimsuit season looms ahead all too quickly.Baggy gray sweats will certainly suffice for the task of getting trim, but even serious exercise enthusiasts know how much an attractive, stylish reflection in the dressing room mirror can help with motivation.

Last fall, as Armani premiered its collection of sporting pants and sweaters in Milan, Andre Agassi offered a glimpse of his own impending make-over. His shirt and hat were printed with rude phrases slamming tennis.Once Nike made the outfit available in stores, he quit wearing it. Mr. Agassi refuses to look like everyone else, a company spokeswoman explained.So in January he unveiled a newer, more shocking incarnation, a streetwise array of stripes and prints and knee-length baggies. To go with the look, Mr. Agassi sheared his trademark hair to stubble, with sideburns, and wore thick hoops in each ear."
