Monday October 08, 2007

US date format: 10/8/2007, UK date format: 8/10/2007

It was Monday, under the sign of Libra (see birth chart on October 8, 2007). The US president was George W. Bush (Republican), the UK Prime Minister was Gordon Brown (Labour), Pope Benedict XVI was leading the Catholic Church. 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. American Gangster, directed by Ridley Scott, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2007 while The Wheel Of Darkness by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Moonlight. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Namco Museum Remix or Dance! Online.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
