Currently a freelance Web developer. I loathe Web development.
I'm a Scheme/Lisper at heart. Recently, I've been messing around with Haskell.
Haskell AND Lisp vs. Haskell OR Lisp
It's funny, I've had the opposite experience. I picked up the main points of functional programming through Scheme, my first language. I occasionally hack in Haskell and I inevitably find that I have to relearn 90%+ of the stuff that I knew whenever I leave Haskell for a while. That being said, Haskell is an incredibly rich language, with a huge amount to teach you (very forcibly.) Types Types Types Types! Follow the types!
