Before Usher Raymond hit the scene, most people who asked about my name would say something trite like "were you conceived in a movie theater" or perhaps something slightly more intellectual such as were your parents fans of Edgar Allen Poe? The real answer is that my grandfather was named Usher and that Usher is a derivative of Asher.
Nowadays that has changed to, "Usher, like the singer?" To which I need to find a wittier response, and I'm open to suggestions. Maybe I should try just humming a few bars of one of his songs.
Anyway, I've noticed something funny since I started tracking the stats on my blog (of which there aren't that many.) Probably half of everyone who ventures on this blog has done a search for "Usher" or "Phat Usher Pics" or something like that. Now, I'm not entirely sure what these people are looking for, but I'd say its a fair bet that they didn't find it here.
Of course if I were really smart I'd figure out a way to capitalize on that traffic and make a few shekels (now that I've put the words "Usher" and "Raymond" together, I think my stats are going to jum again.) In the meantime, thanks for stopping in and good luck finding what you are looking for and rest assured this is likely the last time I mention Usher Raymond on my blog.
