Wednesday 20 October 2010

It was Wednesday, under the sign of Libra. The US president was Barack Obama (Democratic). In that special week of October people in US were listening to Just The Way You Are by Bruno Mars. Ip Man, directed by Wilson Yip, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2010 while The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Sherlock. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Costume Quest or Command Ops: Battles from the Bulge.
