Grumpy

Posted on | December 4, 2009 | 3 Comments

Today has been a grumpy day. For reasons I won’t go into, and that were no one person’s fault, a train of annoying events was set in motion as the cosmos continued its spiteful vendetta against me.

I spent most of the afternoon grumping around the house, scowling and moaning to myself. I secreted myself away from familial company (for their own good) and mainly browsed around the internet, complaining under my breath at much of what I read there.

As afternoon turned to evening, guilt got the better of me and I thought I’d try to do some work. I began scripting a sit-com that I’ve been playing-with and plotting for a while now. My bad mood hampered things though and, at best, I now have four pages of a sit-grump.

On the plus side, an inadvertent typo gave rise to my coining a new word:

Sarcastoic
noun, a person who can endure hardship with little complaint but with considerable grumpy sneering.
adjective: having or showing sarcastoic qualities.

That’s it.  That’s the best thing that’s happened me today.

Stupid cosmos.

I mostly sit around all day and drink tea. Occasionally, I write stuff and send it to strangers so they can humiliate me and deride my efforts. Other than the self-harm to dull the shame of failure, it's not a bad life. Like I say, there's tea.
