Friday 28 July 2006

It was Friday, under the sign of Leo (see planets position on July 28, 2006). The US president was George W. Bush (Republican). In that special week of July people in US were listening to Promiscuous by Nelly Furtado. In UK Hips Don't Lie by Shakira featuring Wyclef Jean was in the top 5 hits. Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan, directed by Larry Charles, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2006 while Freakonomics by Steven D. Levitt, Stephen J. Dubner was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching The Minor Accomplishments of Jackie Woodman. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Civilization IV: Warlords or CellFactor: Combat Training.
