In addition to finding elegant lisp and converting it to another language, one thing you might try to do is to find cool perl code. (I find that perl code can be cool more easily than it can be elegant - certain types of elegance can be cool, I'll admit, but you can very easily have highly unelegant yet cool perl code)

This means both looking at perl code that does things in cool ways and that does stuff that's just darn cool by itself. Obviously, this standard is going to be a bit of a personal judgement call, but I happen to think that solving this problem is a pretty cool thing to do. Of course, I'm biased since I happen to think that my solution is pretty cool. However, look over other expert-level quizzes in the (now sadly mostly defunct) perl qotw archives. Some of those will almost certainly be cool problems from your point of view.

And there's always the monastery's own Cool Uses for Perl.

In short, I think you can overcome your lisp addiction by changing your tastes away from "elegance over all" and to the (perhaps more low-brow) "find cool stuff".
