It was Sunday, under the sign of Leo (see birth chart on August 16, 2009). The US president was Barack Obama (Democrat). In that special week of August people in US were listening to I Gotta Feeling by The Black Eyed Peas. The Descent: Part 2, directed by Jon Harris, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2009 while The Girl Who Played With Fire by Stieg Larsson was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching My Fair Lady. If you liked videogames you were probably playing 2XL Fleet Defense or Star Wars: The Clone Wars Republic Heroes.
