Friday 17 July 2009

It was Friday, under the sign of Cancer (see planets position on July 17, 2009). The US president was Barack Obama (Democratic). In that special week of July people in US were listening to I Gotta Feeling by The Black Eyed Peas. Julie & Julia, directed by Nora Ephron, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2009 while Relentless by Dean Koontz was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Little White Lie. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Cuboid or Crush the Castle.
