Thursday 20 October 2011

It was Thursday, under the sign of Libra (see planets position on October 20, 2011). The US president was Barack Obama (Democratic). In that special week of October people in US were listening to Someone Like You by Adele. Puss in Boots, directed by Chris Miller, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2011 while Rin Tin Tin by Susan Orlean was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Man Up. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Atelier Meruru: The Apprentice of Arland or Beatmania IIDX 19: Lincle.
