My self-summary
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 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."

- I genuinely wonder why nobody says "groovy" anymore. Actually, this really boils down to the question of why "cool" is really the only word regarding that concept to have ever really stuck.
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 night school - I like to stay busy.

Otherwise, I like reading (with the result being I like my commute), writing, going for long walks exploring the city and hanging out with friends. I also love going to museums (I think I could just about live in the Met, "From The Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler"-style) and enjoy Broadway musicals, particularly Sondheim ones. I also like playing guitar, though I'm rather more enthusiastic than skilled.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Sumo wrestling - though I'm a bit out of practice, not having done it in a decade and a half. But I was pretty good at the time. There's footage of it floating around some Japanese network news show.

You may think I'm joking about this. I assure you, I'm not.

Also, Jeopardy.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Pride and Prejudice, The Chosen, American Gods. Lately, I've been on a serious Guy Gavriel Kay kick, so yeah, that's a topic I'm more than willing to discuss.

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

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

Music: The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, The Who, Taylor Swift, Billy Joel

Food: I have great weaknesses for ice cream, General Tso's chicken and Sriracha. I have yet to have a spicy ice cream, and honestly, I'm not really looking to change that, although my experience with garlic ice cream was entirely positive, so maybe I should keep an open mind.
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
4) Ben & Jerry's
5) Duct tape. It can do anything except, curiously, fix ducts. This is why you probably don't want to try and fix your air conditioning unit with it - though, who knows, you may have better results than I did.
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.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
-How great it will be when the Dodgers end the practical joke and move back to Brooklyn. Until they do, I root for the Yankees. I realize it doesn't make a lick of sense that I should show such loyalty to a team that bailed over thirty years before I was born, but while I appreciate logic, life's much more interesting if you're not completely ruled by it.

-Why everyone on Downton Abbey seems to be perfectly okay with Thomas even though he's terrible at his job and not a good person.

-Would X go well with Sriracha, where X is usually - but not always - some type of food.
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 morbid curiosity to see what would happen next.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
- If you have a video of red or giant pandas you would like to share. Seriously, I can never see too many of these, so if you're thinking "I like the vibe of this profile, but I just don't know what to open with," that's a REALLY good default.
- If you strongly believe that "different flavors of ice cream" is a topic worth discussing for hours on end
- If you like the idea of someone singing Katy Perry songs whilst doing a Paul Robeson impression.
- If every time you accidentally make the typo of writing "hours" as "horus," you smile because that fifth grade term spent on Egyptian mythology hasn't left you yet
- If you can keep your head when all about you are losing theirs and blaming it on you
- If you think the last, plagiarized, bullet point was an obvious joke to make but also would have viewed it as a missed opportunity had I not made a similar joke
- If you think the coolest car on earth is the Popemobile because it's called "the Popemobile" and really, that's just awesome
- If absolutely none of the above points apply but you still want to message me.
