Friday 26 December 2008

It was Friday, 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 Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It) by Beyonce. The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, directed by David Fincher, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2008 while Twilight by Stephenie Meyer was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Van Vlees en Bloed. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts or Commanders: Attack of the Genos.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
