Monday 24 October 2011

It was Monday, under the sign of Scorpio (see planets position on October 24, 2011). The US president was Barack Obama (Democratic). In that special week of October people in US were listening to Someone Like You by Adele. Will, directed by Ellen Perry, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2011 while That Used To Be Us by Thomas L. Friedman and Michael Mandelbaum was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Man Up. If you liked videogames you were probably playing CastleVille or Clan of Champions.
