Saturday 26 July 2008

It was Saturday, under the sign of Leo. The US president was George W. Bush (Republican). In that special week of July people in US were listening to I Kissed A Girl by Katy Perry. Step Brothers, directed by Adam McKay, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2008 while Death Angel by Linda Howard was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Call 911. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Buzz!: Master Quiz or Armand and the Foppish Hat.
