Sunday 26 December 2004

It was Sunday, under the sign of Capricorn. The US president was George W. Bush (Republican). In that special week of December people in US were listening to Drop It Like It's Hot by Snoop Dogg. In UK Do They Know It's Christmas? by Band Aid 20 was in the top 5 hits. Brick, directed by Rian Johnson, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2004 while The Plot Against America by Philip Roth was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching The Eyes of Nye. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Ben Jordan: Paranormal Investigator or Crash Twinsanity.
