It was Friday, under the sign of Libra (see birth chart on October 5, 2007). The US president was George W. Bush (Republican). In that special week of October people in US were listening to Crank That (Soulja Boy) by Soulja Boy Tell'em. In UK About You Now by Sugababes was in the top 5 hits. Home of the Giants, directed by Rusty Gorman, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2007 while Blonde Ambition by Rita Cosby was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Moonlight. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Apocalypse: Desire Next or Aqua Teen Hunger Force Zombie Ninja Pro-Am.
