Shep: see it coming (ciderpress)

Writer's Block: Full Moon Fever

It's the full moon today. Almost every culture has its share of lunar lore, from werewolves to lunacy to true love. Do you believe that the full moon affects our behavior or do you think it's a myth?
TRUFAX: When you work at a call centre, there is usually a day, every so often, where you get so many crazy calls, and I don't mean irates, no, I mean people who call to ask the dental insurance about laundry and then get irate because we won't wash their clothes, that by the end of the day you turn to the next cubicle over and ask, "what is up with these calls today?"

"I dunno," your neighbour says. "Is it a full moon or something?"

So you look it up on the Internet and lo and behold, it is. I think it may have something to do with the human body being 60% water and that whole tide effect.
