Dreicht (dreary, dull, bleak, normally used to describe the perma-drizzle associated with the Scottish climate, but also to describe something boring and uninteresting - as in 'These sockpuppets are no half getting a bit dreicht.')
Carfuffle (a fuss, a disagreement - as in '... but there's no need to get in a carfuffle about it.'
