It was Thursday, 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 Buy U A Drank (Shawty Snappin') by T-Pain. In UK Beautiful Liar by Beyonce & Shakira was in the top 5 hits. Mr. Brooks, directed by Bruce A. Evans, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2007 while The Husband by Dean Koontz was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching The Universe. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Alvin and the Chipmunks or Crash Time: Autobahn Pursuit.
