We brought together one confused married guy and one smart single woman for mutual enlightenment through a meaningful dialogue of the heart.

The bride -- one of them, at least -- wore a scoop-necked, full-skirted wedding gown, a pearl tiara and dainty glass slippers. And, over everything, a T-shirt with red gothic lettering that spelled the word trouble. She was Nancy F. Fischer, a 23-year-old from Dundalk. She stood in the crowded Baltimore County courthouse hallway as her betrothed, a 25-year-old volunteer firefighter from Dundalk named Jimmy E. Dennison, paid $25 for the ceremony and put their names on a list. She soon got rid of the T-shirt -- to look more the part, she said -- and waited.

Wearing pigtails and a pink sweat shirt, Jennifer Gilbert-Duran skipped up the steps of a Pasadena home to deliver a Valentine's Day gift basket. But as 21-year-old Richard McLeod signed for the package, he got a less romantic surprise. A sheriff's deputy placed him under arrest on a charge of failing to appear in court on an open-container violation. "So that isn't mine?" McLeod asked as he was handcuffed. Anne Arundel County Sheriff Ron Bateman is no Cupid, but he did spend yesterday playing matchmaker: pairing a dozen crime suspects with their outstanding warrants.

For this Valentine's season, the folks at Bay Theatre are offering A. R. Gurney's 1989 off-beat near-classic, "Love Letters. " This two-person play is ideally suited to Bay's intimate space, as well as its intention of extending the Valentine season through March 4.

Shackleton's Antarctic Expedition : . . ( 4 STARS) No film in town is more exciting or moving than the IMAX version of George Butler's documentary "The Endurance: Shackleton's Legendary Antarctic Expedition," at the Maryland Science Center. It chronicles Ernest Shackleton's 1914 attempt to make his British team the first to traverse the Antarctic - and his struggle to bring them all back alive when the Endurance became stuck in ice a day's journey from the shore. The depiction of the mental and physical extremities that tested their sanity is nothing less than majestic.

Even in a recession, people are still saying it with flowers. But with Valentine's Day fast approaching, local florists are wishing their customers would say it perhaps just a little bit louder. "We've been getting fewer orders all the way across the board," says Avalon Thompson, owner of Enchanted Petals Florist on Lombard Street, who says her business is down significantly from last year. "Absolutely, it's hard. ... We're just trying to basically wait this out, like everybody else." Several Baltimore-area florists said business has declined between 8 percent and 20 percent during the past several months.

Sure, not everyone wants to celebrate Valentine's Day. It's not so hard to sit it out. But imagine if you and your sweetheart worked together in the Valentine's Day industry, catering to romance but, come dinnertime on Feb. 14, never able to experience it yourselves. That's the situation facing couples who work together in restaurants. Picture them: One is firing up a filet mignons, the other is clambering over boxes of sparkling wine in the walk-in. All the while, customers are glowing dreamily in the candlelight, clasping hands under the table and feeding each other succulent bites of lobster Thermidor.

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)
