    Not a loser story, exactly:

    Last night at work we seemed to have more than the usual number of mixups/miscommunications with the customers. To the point where I asked my coworker "Is it a full moon or something?" and later, another customer who witnessed a dust-up asked us the same thing.

    We weren't sure b/c for a string of nights we'd had heavy cloud cover.

    Well, tonight is clear: and the moon is just past full.

    Anecdotal, I know, but the moon does seem to affect some people's moods.

      We just don't all get the same cloud cover, or lack thereof.  Worked fine for the 1st night of Shakespeare in Forest Park last night, having the full moon.

        Especially if Shakespeare in the Park under a full moon was A Midsummer Night's Dream.

        Wow. How appropriate...how magical that would be.

          It's Twelfth Night this year.  In fact, the set incorporates a big ol' moon in the stage backdrop.  The company homepage is here (Mozilla might be better than IE here).
