Tuesday 5 May 2009

It was Tuesday, under the sign of Taurus (see planets position on May 5, 2009). The US president was Barack Obama (Democratic). In that special week of May people in US were listening to Boom Boom Pow by The Black Eyed Peas. The White Ribbon, directed by Michael Haneke, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2009 while Tea Time For The Traditionally Built by Alexander McCall Smith was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching The Incredible Human Journey. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Arcade Hoops Basketball or Cursed Mountain.
