Roads to Perlby gunzip (Pilgrim)

I'd like to hear how other Perl monks discovered the language as my road to Perl was a little indirect.
The battle raged for about a month during which I was slogging away with the ugly Java Swing library and AWT by day and relaxing with Larry Wall's "Programming Perl" by night. I soon realised that I was looking forward to the evening sessions with Larry Wall as a release from the tedium of banging my head against the brick wall of Java. Perl was fun.
So, the Java books were eventually put to one side and began gathering dust. The bookshelves have gradually filled with Perl titles and I enjoy the culture which is unique to Perl. Emacs also replaced Dreamweaver eventually but that's another story
