Cranky, unhappy, or surly. The boss is really in a mood today, so I'd steer clear of him if you don't want to get screamed at.

Likely to or interested in doing something. I don't think the boss is in the mood to talk about raises today—maybe tomorrow. I'm kind of in a mood to go on a hike today. Want to join me?
