Thursday 21 January 2010

It was Thursday, under the sign of Aquarius (see planets position on January 21, 2010). The US president was Barack Obama (Democratic). In that special week of January people in US were listening to TiK ToK by Ke$ha. Blue Valentine, directed by Derek Cianfrance, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2010 while The Last Song by Nicholas Sparks was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Dear John. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Angry Birds Seasons or Age of Conan: Rise of the Godslayer.
