Shhh tell the *sane* part to go back to sleep! ;)

I have never really put my thoughts of Perl into a framework but I would definately say Perl is something special to me. I generally think of myself as a mediocre coder at best (slowly getting better); However I could never give up because Perl keeps calling me.

I would have to say Perl is definitely female and likened along the lines of a siren, luring me near with a feeling I cannot accurately describe. The only thing that does not fit into the sirens analogy is the pending doom, of which I can see none -- But neither did anyone ever trapped by a siren's song, no?
