Will you help me come up with a portmanteau for sleepy and angry?

Asked by Aethelflaed (13752points) February 21st, 2012

I am in need of a portmanteau that combines sleepy and angry, or any words meaning sleepy and angry. So, tired, exhausted, pissy, testy, rancorous – all up for grabs. It is to describe that particular jerk-like behavior one takes on when one is tired, and should really go to bed, but instead will take their frustration out on other people. To be used in the following sentence: “Sorry, I’m not mad at you, I’m just [blank]”.

Slangry is a no-go.

@gailcalled We decided that really sounded more like a slutty angry than a sleepy angry.

“Sorry, I’m not mad at you, I’m just tired.” or “Sorry, I’m not mad at you, I’m just angry.” So, “Sorry, I’m not mad at you, I’m just tangerd.” Or “tiregry”.

Really, what’s a portmanteau?

@DaphneT Just like that :)

Tangerd. Yes. This could work…

exhaustrated? I really wanted to find one that had the word “grumpy” in it, though.

I really like ‘exhaustrated’, though.

Or, along the same lines, “exhausperated”
