Lolita Harper You are the couple that doesn't believe in labels. He's not your "boyfriend," she's not your "girlfriend" -- your feelings for each other don't fit those traditional molds. The commercial concept of Valentine's Day makes your stomach turn. Nonetheless, a day devoted to true love is appealing, if done correctly and from the heart. The truly committed, however, should be careful not to let their emotions fog clear thinking when contemplating a permanent arrangement.

WEATHER FORECAST On the second day of winter, my true love gave to me a day that is practically rain-free. However, expect the clouds to stick around for a while, keeping the temperatures cool. A high of 64 and a low of 45 are expected today -- falling right within the average temperatures for the season. Bundle up if you're going to see the last night of the Newport Harbor Christmas Boat Parade. And remember, only two shopping days left till Christmas.

Casanova, the legendary lover and seducer, has been portrayed many times and many ways in the movies. Now director Lasse Halstrom ("Chocolat") has Heath Ledger wearing the puffy shirt in his lavish version of "Casanova," set in 1753 Venice. It's an old-fashioned farce, featuring more bodice heaving than bodice ripping. The opening scene has Casanova fleeing rooftops after he has made himself well acquainted with some nuns. He is captured by Vatican Inquisitors, who would like nothing better than to hang him for his wild ways.

For heaven's sake, people, let's get a move on. What do you think this is -- a holiday? You only have six days left: 144 hours, 8,640 minutes, 518,400 seconds. In the time it took you to reach this comma, (see comma, to your left) you could have bought .75 gifts, built at least one layer of the seven-layer cookies, trimmed two-thirds of a branch.

THE DATE Bright and early Don't waste a minute of that gorgeous California sunshine. Get up, get out of the house and get that heart pumping. A nice, peaceful jog around the Newport Back Bay is the perfect way to start the day with your loved one. Side by side, you will walk or jog through the scenic landscape -- and every now and then, glance over at your honey, who is just as radiant as the early morning dew glistening on the wildflowers.
