Guest post by Kurt of Other People Exist

Thank you to Perp Choc for inviting me to guest post on this blog.

I also love chocolate, 72% dark to be precise. I use to buy the giant bars from Trader Joe's and eat about a half hour's worth every night after dinner, but after ten years or so, I decided that might not be good for me. Everything in moderation and all. Now I have one square after lunch and sometimes another after dinner. Nutritionists say dark chocolate is good for you (it has flavonols and it lowers your blood pressure), but not to eat more than a pound a day.

Like Perp Choc, I also enjoy drawing. I've been drawing since I was a little boy and I ate moderate amounts of chocolate. All teachers know that, when it comes to drawing, some kids just have it, and I was not one of them. Then, one day in 1993, while camping in the desert, I took out a notebook and began drawing cartoons, and I haven't stopped since, except to buy more notebooks. I even got one published in a magazine that subsequently went out of business.

Here is that very cartoon, now removed from this post (©2003, Kurt).
