The Grump (in homage to My Favourite Things)

Scowling and snarling and loudly complaining
Bitching and howling not a moment of peace
Grumpy and gnarly I moan when I sing
Grumbling is one of my favourite things

When the world scowls

"In 1959, Rodgers and Hammerstein wrote the music for the Broadway production, The Sound of Music.  One of the most famous songs from the musical is "My Favorite Things."  Since its inception, the song has been covered by countless artists, and we're asking you to follow suit.  Give us a few of your favorite things, in whichever form you want, in 33 words exactly."
