It was Wednesday, under the sign of Capricorn. The US president was George W. Bush (Republican). In that special week of January people in US were listening to Lose Yourself by Eminem. In UK Cheeky Song (Touch My Bum) by Cheeky Girls was in the top 5 hits. Irreversible, directed by Gaspar No, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2003 while The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Towards the Republic. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Battle Engine Aquila or Dominions II: The Ascension Wars.
