Sunday 5 August 2007

It was Sunday, 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 The Way I Are by Timbaland featuring Doe & Keri Hilson was in the top 5 hits. Stardust, directed by Matthew Vaughn, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2007 while Outrage by Dick Morris and Eileen McGann was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Marx and Venus. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Arctic Tale or Call of Duty: Roads to Victory.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
