Mortar and pestle

I received a gift from a coworker who shares the love of food and cooking like me. She got me a small mortar and pestle. I am assuming from World Market. Now I'm excited, but also at a loss. What to use it for? Husband doesn't like curries so there goes grinding my own spices down for a curry powder. What else can I use my new toys for?
