It was Saturday, under the sign of Leo (see planets position on August 22, 2009). The US president was Barack Obama (Democratic). In that special week of August people in US were listening to I Gotta Feeling by The Black Eyed Peas. Up in the Air, directed by Jason Reitman, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2009 while Rules Of Vengeance by Christopher Reich was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching My Fair Lady. If you liked videogames you were probably playing BlazBlue: Continuum Shift or Call of Duty: Modern Warfare: Mobilized.
