Friday February 25, 2005

US date format: 2/25/2005, UK date format: 25/2/2005

It was Friday, under the sign of Pisces (see birth chart on February 25, 2005). The US president was George W. Bush (Republican), the UK Prime Minister was Tony Blair (Labour), Pope St John Paul II was leading the Catholic Church. In that special week of February people in US were listening to Let Me Love You by Mario. In UK Like Toy Soldiers by Eminem was in the top 5 hits. My Big Fat Independent Movie, directed by Philip Zlotorynski, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2005 while Animals In Translation by Temple Grandin and Catherine Johnson was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Vier Frauen und ein Todesfall. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Dragon Quest Heroes: Rocket Slime or Super Mario Strikers.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
