Good for you. Expect your cheerful mood to continue - Python beats
most other languages senseless, too (I'm not sure about various
functional programming languages - they can be very elegant, but seem
to be quite impractical for many problems, and hard to grok). After a
while of doing things the Python way, doing the same things in other
languages feels like a real drag. There's very little "grunt work"
that makes people opt for software architect/whatever role instead of
a "normal" programmer. There's a very short time between
understand-how-it-should-work and a working implementation, which
makes it ideal for impatient people (which probably applies for 90% of
programmers :)
