Tuesday 12 October 2010

It was Tuesday, under the sign of Libra. The US president was Barack Obama (Democratic). In that special week of October people in US were listening to Just The Way You Are by Bruno Mars. Ip Man, directed by Wilson Yip, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2010 while Getting To Happy by Terry McMillan was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Hard Drive 13. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Atelier Totori: The Adventurer of Arland or Dead to Rights: Retribution.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
