Grumpindicular

adjective; blending and clipping
Continuously grumpy and sulky Synonymous with "grumpy." See "fussbudgetous." There is not, as far as I'm aware, any meaning attached to the "indicular" fragment of the word. I didn't see much use for parsing "perpendicular" since I'm almost certain that it was used purely for its sound symbolism.
 
The baby was grumpindicular all night last night.
Etymology : grump 'to sulk or complain' + indicular 'neat-sounding portion of the word perpendicular'
