New Policy here on Rocket Jones

Over at Sanity's Edge, Paul is sharing a very funny story about his visit to Japan. One thing that intrigues me is the Japanese habit of everyone yelling a greeting as they enter and leave a restaurant. According to Paul, you walk in and the entire staff hollers at you, and you holler back when you leave. Or something like that.

So that's it. From now on, you come to Rocket Jones, you yell a greeting in the comments, and before you leave you yell again.

Maybe this way, next year I'll be eligible for "Best Asian Blog" award.

Cindy!!! I was wondering what was up. Thought you might've been hired away for your own program by the on-air pros.

I love that place, but was getting really confused at all the yelling.

oh, yeah...HELLO!
