Sunday 17 May 2009

It was Sunday, under the sign of Taurus. 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. Up, directed by Pete Docter, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2009 while The Help by Kathryn Stockett was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching The Great Queen Seondeok. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Big Bang Mini or The Clique: Diss and Make-Up Queen Teen: The Clique.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
