Wednesday 23 January 1991

It was Wednesday, under the sign of Aquarius. The US president was George H. W. Bush (Republican). In that special week of January people in US were listening to The First Time by Surface. In UK Sadness Part 1 by Enigma was in the top 5 hits. The Silence of the Lambs, directed by Jonathan Demme, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1991 while You Just Don'T Understand by Deborah Tannen was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Boys from the Bush. If you liked videogames you were probably playing L'Empereur or Eye of the Beholder II: The Legend of Darkmoon.
