Thursday 27 August 1998

It was Thursday, under the sign of Virgo. The US president was Bill Clinton (Democratic). In that special week of August people in US were listening to The Boy Is Mine by Brandy & Monica. In UK No Matter What by Boyzone was in the top 5 hits. Blade, directed by Stephen Norrington, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1998 while Tuesdays With Morrie by Mitch Albom was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Minty. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Close Combat III: The Russian Front or Lego Chess.
