Yeah, so do I.

You can build with it, of course.

Or, make an artificial mountain or lolcano, if your environment sucks. :Notch:

dig deep underground, maybe even in a natural cavern, then section of a space using TNT with a relatively flat floor, make room for a small pond, cover floor with dirt, plant trees, flowers, mushrooms. you now have a cool little nature cavern...except, oh wait...ITS ALL DIRT. so use your many dirt blocks to build a staircase up to the surface so its touching another dirt block, and then wait for it to slowly spread down. enjoy waiting

I usually have so much dirt that I throw a lot of it into lava. It's a waste, yes, but I've had several chests full of dirt sitting around for so long and I don't feel like making a whole new storage area for it.
However, I always have a few stacks in all my bases because it can't be beat for makeshift scaffolding or easily-removable blocks during tricky builds.

Save a single chest for creeper repairs, then build several large dirt statues of yourself.

I like having a lot of dirt because it allows me to make stairs for mining and scaffolding for large projects. It's nice to keep a few stacks at every location you go to.
