Sometimes I feel shitty, that might be worth an add. Don't know what Wikipedia will have to say about that, though . . .

Tali--Shitty-defined as a feeling over all crapiness. Characterized by a sourpuss face and a down turned smile.

Yup-I can familiarize with this comment and have thereby added it to my list.
