Copyediting isn't fun. It's necessary, it's something I'm good at, and it makes me feel productive when it's done. But the act itself isn't fun.

Well, there are activities I would consider "fun", like playing games, watching movies, walking in the snow, throwing a frisbee around, having sex, eating. But I think you're right for the most part.

I guess I just had it in my head that I like copyediting, and it just occurred to me this morning that, no, I don't actually like copyediting---I like the results.

Some days, good copyediting is better than sex :)

You either have some really good copyediting or some really bad sex.

There, there dear. Is this vanilla tea nice and soothing? Are you feeling okay now? Just relax. Feel the zen of copyediting. Breathe.
