Peanut was the first of many parakeets I've had. I've had several of them, from childhood to adulthood. They can be very fun to watch. The more an owner interacts with the bird, the more of a "ham" he or she seems to become. They enjoy attention, so placing their cage in an active area of the house is a great idea. They can definitely get messy if you happen to get one that enjoys throwing seed out of his cage, but overall, they are not high maintenance animals at all. They can be a lot of fun and actually a great companion.
