Thursday March 08, 2007

US date format: 3/8/2007, UK date format: 8/3/2007

It was Thursday, under the sign of Pisces (see birth chart on March 8, 2007). The US president was George W. Bush (Republican), the UK Prime Minister was Tony Blair (Labour), Pope Benedict XVI was leading the Catholic Church. In that special week of March people in US were listening to This Is Why I'm Hot by Mims. In UK Shine by Take That was in the top 5 hits. Knocked Up, directed by Judd Apatow, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2007 while The Boleyn Inheritance by Philippa Gregory was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Blood Ties. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Apocalypse: Desire Next or B-17: Fortress in the Sky.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
