Does Satan enjoy Hell? In the Judeo-Christian construct.

Hey guys. Now I'm not a religious person by any means (I feel that has bearing on the nature of the question). I've been reading Joyce though, and his characters often have trouble with certain aspects of Irish Catholicism. It got me thinking: in the Judeo-Christian construct of heaven and hell, God and Satan, we are informed that heaven is the location of all bliss and hell of all evil. Or something like that. What I'm wondering is, from that perspective, does Satan get any fun out of being in hell? I mean, plenty of things deemed "evil" are also pleasurable, at least to the primary individual. Does he have fun down there? Or is it just pure, no-playing-around-and-god-dammit-stop-smiling evil?
