   So, besides for the fact that elisp is the Emacs extension
   language, what makes you enthusiastic about it and want to
   program in it?  What makes elisp fun for you?

For me, Emacs makes Emacs Lisp "fun".  In the past, this fun was
in the form of ‘M-x zone RET’ (and so on).  In the present, such
concerns like "how to disable the address@hidden@# ELECTRIC-FOO" is "fun".
In the future, i might very well re-enable Blink-Cursor mode, in
anger or in jest, and see what manner of hooks can be piled onto
the timers before Emacs throws a rod...  that might be fun.  :-D

Of course, Emacs also makes Emacs Lisp "not fun", at times, like
when old (functional) code fails to run on a new release.  Sigh.
