Sunday 17 August 2008

It was Sunday, under the sign of Leo. The US president was George W. Bush (Republican). In that special week of August people in US were listening to I Kissed A Girl by Katy Perry. Death Race, directed by Paul W.S. Anderson, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2008 while Are You There by Chelsea Handler was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Mummy Forensics. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Cory in the House (video game) or Dragon Ball: Origins.
But much more happened that day: find out below..

You can also have a look at the whole 2008 or at August 17 across the years.
