Sunday 23 August 2009

It was Sunday, under the sign of Virgo (see planets position on August 23, 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 The Girl Who Played With Fire by Stieg Larsson was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching My Fair Lady. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Bakugan Battle Brawlers or Ceville.
