Wednesday 2 July 2008

It was Wednesday, under the sign of Cancer. The US president was George W. Bush (Republican). In that special week of July people in US were listening to I Kissed A Girl by Katy Perry. Hancock, directed by Peter Berg, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2008 while New Moon by Stephenie Meyer was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Baseball's Golden Age. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Asphalt 4: Elite Racing or Bomberman Touch: The Legend of Mystic Bomb.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
