Thursday 8 January 2009

It was Thursday, under the sign of Capricorn (see planets position on January 8, 2009). The US president was George W. Bush (Republican). In that special week of January people in US were listening to Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It) by Beyonce. Moon, directed by Duncan Jones, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2009 while Hot, Flat, And Crowded by Thomas L. Friedman was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Secret Millionaire. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Beaterator or Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.
