VB (VBscript, ASP.NET) should be separate. Also what are you referring to. Classic VB or VB.Net?

I focus on VB.Net mainly and have done for the past 10 years. I started out with classic VB (1997) then moved over in 2001. I also mess with PHP and Use to write a fair bit of Classic asp.

Lisp. But unfortunately, I don't have the opportunity anymore to code often in Lisp.

I said jScript not Javascript :P jScript was m$ own version of javascript. An old VBS book had a chapter dedicated to it.

As explained by JavaScript guru Douglas Crockford in his talk entitled The JavaScript Programming Language on YUI Theater,

[Microsoft] did not want to deal with Sun about the trademark issue, and so they called their implementation JScript. A lot of people think that JScript and JavaScript are different but similar languages. That's not the case. They are just different names for the same language, and the reason the names are different was to get around trademark issues.

C++ so far, but I'd love to learn and get good at a few more languages.
