My self-summary
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 Morgan Freeman.

- 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
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
Threading a path though the crowd in Times Square, a skill developed on the clean streets of Tokyo.

Also, Trivial Pursuit.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: The Chosen, American Gods, Pride and Prejudice, pretty much anything by Guy Gavriel Kay, The Prisoner of Zenda, essays by George Orwell and David Foster Wallace

Movies: Casablanca, The Dark Knight, Layer Cake, Roman Holiday, What About Bob?

Shows: Chuck, Parks and Recreation, The Wire, The West Wing

Music: The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, The Who, Taylor Swift, Billy Joel. Talking non-pop music, opera.

Food: Udon, General Tso's chicken and Sriracha.
The six things I could never do without
1) Reading material
2) Good pens
3) Comfortable walking shoes
4) Frogurt
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 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.
You should message me if
If you've made it this far, then it's probably a good idea.
