Last night, Isaac, who's 4 1/2, gave me the Valentine he had made for me at school. "I love my Mommy because sometimes she lets me watch shows in the morning. " Eeep, really?

" Yes, we were strictly show-free in the mornings (OK, well, at least most of the time) for quite a while.

Valentine's Day used to be a wonderful time in the heady days before romance entered into its sordid relationship with Big Business.Back then a man could dash into a drug store after work and pick up a sappy Hallmark card and cheap box of candy, and be relatively certain that the woman in his life would just about turn cartwheels at this incredible thoughtfulness.Then, I don't know . . . something happened.Suddenly, it wasn't enough to burst into a Rite-Aid 10 minutes before closing time and bark at the startled Whitesnake freak with the nose ring behind the register: "The little, y'know, chocolates in the, uh, sampler thing . . . YOU GOT ANYMORE OF THEM?

The gourmet shop on Deereco Road that makes its own chocolate in-house even extends its hours on Feb. 14.

" For the holiday, the shop has a few specialties, including assorted chocolate candies encased in a chocolate shell and chocolate-covered strawberries.

Septimius somehow remains mysterious even though he puts a lot of himself out there. First, he goes by Septimius the Great, a Roman emperor who conquered the Parthian Empire, which, we assume, is a lot to live up to. Septimius (the singer, not the emperor) says he is influenced most by "diversity and adversity," which is simulatenously confusing and intriguing. A few minutes spent on his website, septimiusthegreat.com , and you're deeply immersed in striking fashion, tunes such as "Iam Fashion" and "Zodiac Lover," and a photo of him sitting on a "human throne" (pictured here in all its glory)

The House Judiciary Committee and the House Health and Government Operations Committee will meet jointly at 4:30 p.m. this evening to vote on Gov. Martin O'Malley's bill legalizing same-sex marriage in Maryland. The two panels heard the bill jointly in a nearly 11 hour hearing last Friday evening. It is unclear at this point how the voting will work. Each panel could take a separate vote, or they could take one mega-vote as a joint committee. O'Malley said yesterday that he's still a few votes short of passage on the House floor, though he said that members will have to make their decisions soon.
