Grumpy Is Good
Travelling on the bus the other day, I was trying to ignore some Russian or Pole rabbiting into her mobile phone (I'm one of the last Englishmen left in Greater London) when she used the phrase "new year resolution". I guess the Baltic invaders don't have the equivalent phrase. Just in case anyone is wondering what my new year resolution is, I'm going to try to be more grumpy. According to Aussie scientist Professor Joe Forgas, being grumpy is good for you (title link). And there's a lot to be grumpy about in British "art".
