Ada 95 or Lisp.

I actually enjoyed Lisp's parentheses art, but still ugly.

LOL I learned Ada in college, just before 95. I thought it was very elegant. Then Ada 95 tacked on OOP and ruined it.

Writing LISP with a simple editor that didn't "match" opening and closing parentheses automatically. That was fun!
