I've had an intro procedural programming course that used Python and  
an object-oriented programming course that used Java.  I've been  
using PHP at work for about four years.

It seemed to me that Python was more similar to PHP than Java.  Java  
seemed liked a different animal.  That's sort of why I was leaning  
toward Java since I thought it might be helpful to broaden my  
programming horizons.

Would you agree with that, or am I off-base with my understanding of  
the languages?

Thanks for the good luck wish, I'll probably need it.  =)
