Friday 16 January 2009

It was Friday, under the sign of Capricorn (see planets position on January 16, 2009). The US president was George W. Bush (Republican). In that special week of January people in US were listening to Just Dance by Lady GaGa. Luck by Chance, directed by Zoya Akhtar, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2009 while The Host by Stephenie Meyer was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Trust Me. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Cobra 11: Highway Nights (Crash Time III) or Cuboid.
