It was Sunday, under the sign of Leo. The US president was George W. Bush (Republican). In that special week of August people in US were listening to I Kissed A Girl by Katy Perry. Vicky Cristina Barcelona, directed by Woody Allen, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2008 while Fleeced by Dick Morris and Eileen McGann was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Mummy Forensics. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Bratz Super Babiezzzz or Avatar: The Last Airbender – Into the Inferno.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
