Sunday 17 May 2009

It was Sunday, under the sign of Taurus (see planets position on May 17, 2009). The US president was Barack Obama (Democratic). In that special week of May people in US were listening to Boom Boom Pow by The Black Eyed Peas. The War Boys, directed by Ron Daniels, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2009 while The Guernsey Literary And Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Obsessed. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Assassin's Creed: Bloodlines or Lego Indiana Jones 2: The Adventure Continues.
