Thursday 17 November 2011

It was Thursday, under the sign of Scorpio (see planets position on November 17, 2011). The US president was Barack Obama (Democratic). In that special week of November people in US were listening to We Found Love by Rihanna. A 2nd Chance, directed by Clay Glen, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2011 while The Wedding Quilt by Jennifer Chiaverini was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching The Layover. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Carnival Island or Combat of Giants: Dinosaurs 3D.
