Friday April 09, 2004

US date format: 4/9/2004, UK date format: 9/4/2004

It was Friday, under the sign of Aries (see birth chart on April 9, 2004). The US president was George W. Bush (Republican), the UK Prime Minister was Tony Blair (Labour), Pope St John Paul II was leading the Catholic Church. In that special week of April people in US were listening to Yeah! by Usher. In UK Yeah! by Usher featuring Lil' Jon & Ludacris was in the top 5 hits. Man on Fire, directed by Tony Scott, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2004 while The South Beach Diet by Arthur Agatston was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Iron Chef America: Battle of the Masters. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Cube 2: Sauerbraten or Fish Tycoon.
