Alrighty then!!

I was feeling some what cranky today (anyone that mentions or thinks PMS gets a virtual bitch slap ) and I wanted to share with the world.

Mostly because I am just a kind and generous soul

Anyhoo, I was talking to a friend about it and used the word curmudgeonly.

curmudgeonly
adjective
brusque and surly and forbidding; "crusty remarks"; "a crusty old man"; "his curmudgeonly temper"; "gruff manner"; "a gruff reply" [syn: crusty]

I should mention that I like words They are just sooooo much fun, really.

So back to my point. Anyway, I was saying that I was feeling somewhat curmudgeonly but that can't be stictly true.

See curmudgeons are by definition usually men. And since I am pretty sure I am not a man, I figured I couldn't really use that word.

Which got me to thinking (oh lord ) what word would you use for a woman feeling that way.

The first word that came to mind was Bitchy.
But I don't like that Way too negative.

I mean curmudgeon sounds almost cute, ya know??

So your mission (cue mission impossible music...where the hell is Mr Phelps ) , if you choose to accept it, LOL, is to find the word that has kinda the same meaning for woman as curmudgeon has for men.

As usual you will get nothing for your efforts except my undying gratitude and maybe some green smiley things anytime I see your name on a blog (blatant bribery).

This blog will self destruct in 30years Good Luck!

Thank you all for your suggestions!!

Brat unfortunately I dont think I can use "cuntish" in polite company.

BW, liked those words too. But I work with kids alot and I call them "cranky".

Had to look up NachoBaby's word:

Termagant

1. a violent, turbulent, or brawling woman.

2. (initial capital letter) a mythical deity popularly believed in the Middle Ages to be worshiped by the Muslims and introduced into the morality play as a violent, overbearing personage in long robes.

–adjective 3. violent; turbulent; brawling; shrewish.

—Synonyms 1. shrew, virago, harridan, scold.
n. A quarrelsome, scolding woman; a shrew.

I like this word!! Hmmm.... so I guess today I would have been Termagantly.

also looked up Virago...
1. A woman regarded as noisy, scolding, or domineering.
2. A large, strong, courageous woman.

I like that too. Needless to say I prefer the second meaning.

I was thinking along the lines of Shrew.

shrew (plural shrews)


An ill-tempered, nagging woman: a scold.
One of Shakespeare’s plays is The Taming of the Shrew

I like it Desert, I could do a lot with it.

"Don't screw with the Shrew!"
"The turning of the Shrew!"

This has definite possibilities

I love dictionary.com, just wanted to say that

Harridan:
"one that is half Whore, half Bawd"; "a decayed strumpet
Good one L4E, had to look up bawd.

bawd–noun 1. a woman who maintains a brothel; madam.
2. a prostitute.
3. Archaic. a procuress.
[Middle English, probably from Old French baud, merry, licentious, from Old Low German bald, bold, merry; see bhel-2 in Indo-European roots.]

This is a great word! Well both of them Harridan and Bawd.
I like the archaic definitions best.

Half whore interesting...
