Thursday 20 October 2011

It was Thursday, under the sign of Libra. 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 Lionheart by Sharon Kay Penman was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching The Void. If you liked videogames you were probably playing The 7th Guest: Infection or Lego Pirates of the Caribbean: The Video Game.
