It was Thursday morning and I was seeking my place in the space-time continuum that is Ventura Boulevard. The digital clock on my dashboard flashed 9:35. I was late. A block past my destination, if not my destiny, I pulled up to a curb and fed the meter the only change I had--a dime and nickel, good for 36 minutes in Tarzana. In front of the Imagine Center, I encountered a middle-aged man wearing a baseball cap turned backward who was kneeling in prayer.

Candy maker Adrian Solano's relationship with chocolate is strictly platonic. Flower shop employee Neil Wythe's hands sometimes get pricked when he tries to remove the thorns from long-stemmed roses. And the owner of the Love Boutique wishes every day was Valentine's Day. Still, for Valley merchants dealing sweets, flowers and lingerie, the rainy Monday before Valentine's Day wasn't so bad: For example, as a friend of Neil's pointed out, each thorn in the finger led to another finished bouquet.

Call it a guy thing. On the eve of cupid's dice throw, two truths emerged as men awkwardly perused the flower, candy and lingerie shops dotting the San Fernando Valley. Guys generally wait till the last minute to pick up a Valentine's gift. And it's not unusual for men to buy something they could enjoy with their mates. "I am going to surprise her with this," said Bill, of Encino, as he purchased some intimate items from Suzi's Delights, a lingerie shop in Tarzana. "This is a new concept."

(Marylouise Oates is taking a six-month leave of absence.) My au revoir was planned as hip and flip; I'm off to write my novel (at long last). Black-ties and veal critiques won't be my trip; My book's on '60s pols--good times long past. My scrapbook and my trusty Rolodex Can catalogue the eight years that I've spent On premieres, benefits, the social treks To parties that were bombs--or heaven-sent.

There's a new social axiom: You can lead a guest to the bar, but you can't make him drink. Maybe he'll sip some white wine. Perhaps he could be cajoled into accepting a margarita. But essentially, we live in the days of white wine and water. A time when Diet Pepsi is more critical to a party's success than Jim Beam. "People are amazed at how low hosted bar bills are (at benefit parties)," says professional fund-raiser Judy Levy.

"Do you want to try a feather?" It was a nice feather. A big feather. If I had to guess, I'd say the plume was purple. Color-blindness, you know, tends to be a guy thing. If it wasn't purple, maybe the feather was pink. Just call it a purplish pink. Our temptress was clad in something short and lacy, and she waved the feather like a magic wand. Of course we'd give it a try. Frank, a big, crew-cut guy fresh out of the Marine Corps, smiled as the feather stroked his neck. Next it was my turn.

Asking Judy Levy "What's new?" is a loaded question. She ticks off events she has in the works: the premiere of "Casper" for the Children's Action Network and the Starbright Foundation; the annual Pediatric AIDS Foundation carnival; Women in Film's Crystal Awards; the premiere of "Congo" to benefit the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund and the Greater Los Angeles Zoo Assn.; and the premiere of "First Knight," a benefit for the Venice Family Clinic and the Children's Bureau.

State Atty. Gen. Bill Lockyer is proposing new laws regulating charitable fundraising, including one requiring that charities disclose how much they pay celebrities who agree to appear at fundraising events. The reform plan comes in reaction to the scandal involving celebrity fundraiser Aaron Tonken, who was expected to plead guilty today in Los Angeles to two federal fraud charges.
