I was just browsing somebody else’s xanga and she mentioned that when she turned 21, the number 1 single was “It’s Chico Time”…once I finished sniggering, I found mine, and was rather disappointed to find that it was “7 Days” by Craig David.

And, since I’m rather bored and not really feeling up to much right now (I should really go and do some shopping and/or clean my car….but that’s not gonna happen!) I’m going to find the number 1 single on my birthday for every year since I was born. Rock on.

Well.

I’ll be honest – pretty disappointed. And its started so well for me, being born when the Boomtown Rats were on top. I think the rot set in when Glen Madeiros made it, and got much worse when bloody Peter Andre turned up. (and he was only #1 for one bloody week!)

Think I’m going to do some research and see if I can change my birthday, this is just not cool. Gareth Gates, James Blunt, Craig David. Ouch.
