Friday 8 December 2006

It was Friday, under the sign of Sagittarius. The US president was George W. Bush (Republican). In that special week of December people in US were listening to I Wanna Love You by Akon. In UK Patience by Take That was in the top 5 hits. Eragon, directed by Stefen Fangmeier, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2006 while Thirteen Moons by Charles Frazier was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Strutter. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Bounty Hounds or Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War – Dark Crusade.
