Sour grapes and sour milk.

Grumpy crabby crumpled rumpled messy day. Too many backed up things I have to get to and that I don't have time to get to...

tinc malallit....the Catalan for being grumpy, although slightly ruder. "I have sour milk."

I have a big long interesting post about the good parts of the day that I am trying to get to, and this is all I have time to manage.

grumble grumble grumble...

till later....

Mmmm...."tinc malallit."
Interesting.
Any Catalan swear words you care to share?

When I asked around more, it is a rather worse thing to say than I thought. It is not just that you are crabby, but that you have a basically sour disposition. Like your mother raised you on sour milk....., so there is one for you..if you want to say it about someone else..."te malallit" Pronounced tay ma-la-yit.

I actually don't know that many really crabby people - well, at least, people that would be crabby enough to say that to.
Come up with another expression some day. One I can use!

I am so glad you can't use that one...makes life better doesn't it.
