Wednesday 20 May 2009

It was Wednesday, under the sign of Taurus (see planets position on May 20, 2009). 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. The Proposal, directed by Anne Fletcher, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2009 while Always Looking Up by Michael J. Fox was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Sortilegio. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel or Border Break.
But much more happened that day: find out below..

You can also have a look at the whole 2009 or at May 20 across the years.
