Congrats on your monkday.

Curiosity definitely keeps it interesting. Perl, CPAN, and Perlmonks have plenty to keep you busy for pretty much the duration of your natural life, and there's always something new being added. It's a bit of a chore to keep the balance between following your curiosity and engaging in intensive bouts of navel gazing, though. The Perl world is delightfully enabling for either of those. Lost a whole day looking at someone's Perl implementation of Scheme when I'd originally intended to be looking for a decent config / scripting DSL for an app I was working on.
