Thursday 11 December 2008

It was Thursday, under the sign of Sagittarius. The US president was George W. Bush (Republican). In that special week of December people in US were listening to Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It) by Beyonce. Yes Man, directed by Peyton Reed, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2008 while Divine Justice by David Baldacci was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching A World of Her PWN. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts or Buzz!: Brain Bender.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
