It was Thursday, under the sign of Sagittarius. The US president was Barack Obama (Democratic). In that special week of December people in US were listening to Firework by Katy Perry. TRON: Legacy, directed by Joseph Kosinski, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2010 while Crescent Dawn by Clive Cussler and Dirk Cussler was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Welcome Back, Brotter. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Dance Dance Revolution Music Fit or DeathSpank: Thongs of Virtue.
