I'm surprised that PHP hasn't had more of a mention. I was made redundant about 8 years ago and, to keep myself busy between jobs, I learnt PHP. I did a couple of small projects and found it a really easy language to pick up and use. No steep learning curve and quick to get results. I'd class it as 'fun'.

Here's my history:
Basic - fun.
COBOL - not!
Plan - ICL 1900 assembler language. A real challenge.
DataBasic - the best, but unless you've worked with the Pick/Universe database, you'll never have come across it.
Bash/Shell - fun, but sometimes hard work.
Python - fun, but the indentation malarky always annoys me - even though it's logical.
PHP - fun.
Java - nah!
JavaScript - a necessary evil.
c# - I'm just an amateur, so can't judge.
