Wednesday 19 August 2009

It was Wednesday, under the sign of Leo (see planets position on August 19, 2009). The US president was Barack Obama (Democratic).

Up in the Air, directed by Jason Reitman, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2009 while Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching My Fair Lady. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Christmas Clix or Babel Rising.
