Monday 14 April 2008

It was Monday, under the sign of Aries. The US president was George W. Bush (Republican). In that special week of April people in US were listening to Touch My Body by Mariah Carey. In UK American Boy by Estelle featuring Kanye West was in the top 5 hits. The Voyeur, directed by Tinto Brass, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2008 while Losing It by Valerie Bertinelli was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching NOFX Backstage Passport. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Lego Batman: The Videogame or Brothers in Arms: Double Time.
