stabbity (adj.): prickly; irritable; to be easily provoked into stabbing the next person to irritate you or cross your path.

ex. Nikita's is feeling very stabbity today, so I'll avoid dropping these TPS reports on her desk.

I introduced the word "stabbity" into my friend's vocabulary yesterday, and she has gleefully grabbed hold of it . I picked it up through author Warren Ellis, who uses it frequently on his messageboards and in dealing with small unruly children and Republicans, but I am not 100% sure its origins can be traced back to him.
