Monday September 14, 2009

US date format: 9/14/2009, UK date format: 14/9/2009

It was Monday, under the sign of Virgo (see birth chart on September 14, 2009). The US president was Barack Obama (Democrat), the UK Prime Minister was Gordon Brown (Labour), Pope Benedict XVI was leading the Catholic Church. In that special week of September people in US were listening to I Gotta Feeling by The Black Eyed Peas. Alabama Moon, directed by Tim McCanlies, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2009 while The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching My Fair Lady. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Captain Forever or Codename: Panzers - Cold War.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
