Tuesday 24 May 2011

It was Tuesday, under the sign of Gemini (see planets position on May 24, 2011). The US president was Barack Obama (Democratic). In that special week of May people in US were listening to Rolling In The Deep by Adele. 17 Miracles, directed by T.C. Christensen, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2011 while She Walks In Beauty by Caroline Kennedy was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching The Division. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Warhammer 40,000: Kill Team or The Cursed Crusade.
