It was Wednesday, under the sign of Leo. The US president was George W. Bush (Republican). In that special week of August people in US were listening to Hey There Delilah by Plain White T's. In UK Umbrella by Rihanna featuring Jay-Z was in the top 5 hits. The Bourne Ultimatum, directed by Paul Greengrass, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2007 while Happy Endings by Jim Norton was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Marx and Venus. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Battlestations:Midway or Chili Con Carnage.
