Wednesday 26 August 2009

It was Wednesday, under the sign of Virgo (see planets position on August 26, 2009). The US president was Barack Obama (Democratic). In that special week of August people in US were listening to I Gotta Feeling by The Black Eyed Peas. Mr. Nobody, directed by Jaco Van Dormael, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2009 while Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching My Fair Lady. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Castlevania: The Arcade or Star Wars Battlefront: Elite Squadron.
