jeepers! I didn't expect so many responses overnight. You guys made me feel all warm and fuzzy, thanks for the warm welcome. I grew up in northern CT/western MA, so all you folks in New England, say hi to back home for me, I'll be traveling back for the holidays, but New Mexico is without a doubt my home now.
If film truly can be an addiction, then it's certainly one I indulge frequently with no regret (well, perhaps my wallet regrets it). My Hasselblad 12 step program has been held on 'repeat' for quite some time now and I have no intention of stopping. I haven't quite settled on a film though. It was HP5+ for years and years, and I recently decided to start experimenting with Fuji and Foma/Arista.edu Ultra because I figure if I can be happy with cheaper film, then I can take more pictures. I actually found APUG because I was looking for more information on this very topic.
Sirius Glass, my screen name isn't a typo. It occurred to me after I registered that 'wrench' could easily be mistaken for 'wench', but I can assure you that 'wrench' as in the tool was the intended meaning.
Welcome from New York City (although I call Saskatchewan home).

A bunch of Nikons; Feds, Zorkis and a Kiev; Pentax 67-II (inherited from my deceased father-in-law); Bronica SQ-A; and a nice Shen Hao 4x5 field camera with 3 decent lenses that needs to be taken outside more. Oh, and as of mid-2012, one of those bodies we don't talk about here.
