Tuesday 13 December 2011

It was Tuesday, under the sign of Sagittarius (see planets position on December 13, 2011). The US president was Barack Obama (Democratic). In that special week of December people in US were listening to We Found Love by Rihanna. Don 2, directed by Farhan Akhtar, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2011 while Killing Lincoln by Bill O'Reilly and Martin Dugard was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching The Layover. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Deca Sports Extreme or Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II – Retribution.
