Saturday 17 January 2009

It was Saturday, under the sign of Capricorn (see planets position on January 17, 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 Wishful Drinking by Carrie Fisher was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Trust Me. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Blue Dragon: Awakened Shadow or Caucasus: Nanatsuki no Nie.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
