Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm Harold, and here's a list of wholly unimportant, yet true,
statements about me:
- I like to travel and I've hit five of seven continents, and one
day, I will make it to Antarctica to see penguins. March of the
Penguins wasn't enough - although those penguins are lucky,
because if I were to have anyone narrate my life, I'd want it to be
- My favorite word is "mellifluous."
- I have this theory you can tell a lot about a person based on
whether they prefer Scrabble or Monopoly. For the record, I'd go
with Monopoly every time.
- The easiest way to get me to wreck my schedule for the day is to
say "well, there's a book store about a block from here."
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a computer programmer at a bank. I like the job - it's pretty
much a series of timed logic puzzles, and so far as I'm concerned,
there's nothing wrong with that. I'm also doing grad school - I
like to stay busy.
Otherwise, I like reading (with the result being I like my
commute), writing and going for long walks exploring the city. I
also love going to museums and enjoy Broadway musicals,
particularly Sondheim ones.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Threading a path though the crowd in Times Square, a skill
developed on the clean streets of Tokyo.
Also, Trivial Pursuit.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) Reading material
2) Good pens
3) Comfortable walking shoes
5) Duct tape
6) Sriracha hummus. I make it according to a secret recipe. Hint:
it involves two ingredients - which may or may not be
exactly the ingredients you're thinking of - and an unfixed
proportion between the two.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I once won a dance competition. Mercifully, neither injuries nor
footage resulted from this incident, so let's just say -
inaccurately - I won it because of sweet dance moves and not
because people were voting me into the finals out of curiosity to
see what would happen next.
