It was Monday, under the sign of Taurus. The US president was Barack Obama (Democratic). In that special week of May people in US were listening to Not Afraid by Eminem. Robin Hood, directed by Ridley Scott, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2010 while Spoken From the Heart by Laura Bush was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Awkward Embraces. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Ar Tonelico Qoga: Knell of Ar Ciel or And Yet It Moves.
