Congrats, Blue
Many things you have said also apply to me (and a whole lot of other monks I think). What you have said would even be good material for an introduction to PM perhaps in the Guide to the Monastery.
It is definitely worth reading.

    I think PM is addictive... In a good way :-)

    -- tune

      I have to agree that PM is addictive, and it is so in many of the same ways that Perl itself is addictive, so if you fall for one, it's easy to fall for another.

      PM, like Perl, is concerned with "Doing the Right Thing".
      PM, like Perl, trys to figure out what you mean if you aren't clear.
      PM, like Perl, is easy to use but with lots of power.
      PM, like Perl, has it's saints (or gods) to look up to and learn from, as well as it's eager newbies attempting things for the very first time.
      PM, like Perl, is forgiving. And usually it's 'error messages' are rather informative.
      PM, like Perl, is just darn fun.

      Ok, enough campiness for now, but Pm definitely has a feel that keeps bringing me back, and in it's way is a microcosm for the Perl community entire. Which is full of hoopy froods.

      =Blue might be eaten by a grue...
