I currently use Octave / Matlab for writing pricing/calibration scripts. Can't call what I do 'programming'. For scripting purposes, in what ways is Julia better than Octave/Matlab?

Can't really say what's better/ For me, Julia looks like a full-blown language with many numerical libraries for application development. 

Here is a sample in finance.

Julia used to be infamous for its poor support and scarce libraries, AFAIK, but it seems it has improved significantly. Now it additionally enables such ambitious features as polymorphism / despatch at runtime, etc., from what I'm reading. I guess if you are only doing data analysis and don't require performance optimisation, you won't have much use of it.
Still, in the nowadays job market, I'd advise getting familiar with Python in the first place (have a look at iPython if you like Matlab environment). Matlab/Octave sound a bit amateurish or fusty. Just my impression.

I cannot get even mildly interested in any programming language. 

Somebody here is sad. It's either me or everyone else.

Those are not mutually exclusive.
