It was Monday, under the sign of Sagittarius. The US president was George W. Bush (Republican). In that special week of December people in US were listening to Drop It Like It's Hot by Snoop Dogg. In UK Do They Know It's Christmas? by Band Aid 20 was in the top 5 hits. Hotel Rwanda, directed by Terry George, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2004 while America (The Book) by Jon Stewart and The Writers of The Daily Show was one of the best selling books. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Animamundi: Dark Alchemist or Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones.
