Tuesday 21 December 2010

It was Tuesday, under the sign of Sagittarius (see planets position on December 21, 2010). The US president was Barack Obama (Democratic). In that special week of December people in US were listening to Firework by Katy Perry. Nine Dead, directed by Chris Shadley, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2010 while Decoded by Jay-Z was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Glory Daze. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Active Life: Explorer or The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader.
