It was Friday, under the sign of Aquarius. The US president was George W. Bush (Republican). In that special week of January people in US were listening to Independent Women Part I by Destiny's Child. In UK Touch Me by Rui Da Silva featuring Cassandra was in the top 5 hits. In the Mood for Love, directed by Kar Wai Wong, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2001 while The Brethren by John Grisham was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Rendevouz with Simi Garewal. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Columns Crown or Far Gate.
