March 21, 2001. Marti and I attended the opening of The Sex Obsession of R. Crumb, a major exhibition of the artist's work at the Musée de l’Erotisme de Paris. We hung out with Robert for a while, he and his friend Fabienne played a mini-set of the old-timey music he loves so much.

1 pound asparagus, tough stalks snapped off at the base
2 1/2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon milder hot sauce, such as Tapatío or Frank's Red Hot
1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
Bring a pot of water to a boil and season it generously with salt. Add the asparagus and cook for 1 minute, then drain.
Coat the asparagus with 1/2 tablespoon of the olive oil and cook the spears on the grill directly over the coals of a medium fire until they begin to char, about 4 minutes. Remove the asparagus to a platter.
Mix the remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil, the hot sauce, and Parmesan and stir to combine. Pour the sauce over the asparagus and serve immediately.

Often mistaken as a recluse, Garbo lived a private life for decades in Manhattan, leaving her apartment frequently for daily walks with companions or alone. She loved to go antique and gallery shopping. She kept a luxurious, tasteful home.
