Friday 24 May 2002

It was Friday, under the sign of Gemini. The US president was George W. Bush (Republican). In that special week of May people in US were listening to Foolish by Ashanti. In UK One Step Closer by S Club Juniors was in the top 5 hits. Das Experiment, directed by Oliver Hirschbiegel, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2002 while Sin Killer by Larry McMurtry was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Berserk. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Bionicle: Matoran Adventures or Crosscountry Canada 2.
