Sunday 26 May 2002

It was Sunday, under the sign of Gemini. The US president was George W. Bush (Republican). In that special week of May people in US were listening to Foolish by Ashanti. In UK One Step Closer by S Club Juniors was in the top 5 hits. Das Experiment, directed by Oliver Hirschbiegel, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2002 while The Shelters of Stone by Jean M. Auel was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching The Wire. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Butt Ugly Martians: Zoom or Doom or DDRMAX2 Dance Dance Revolution 7thMix.
