It was Thursday, under the sign of Aquarius (see birth chart on January 29, 1998). The US president was Bill Clinton (Democrat), the UK Prime Minister was Tony Blair (Labour), Pope St John Paul II was leading the Catholic Church. In that special week of January people in US were listening to Together Again by Janet. In UK Never Ever by All Saints was in the top 5 hits. Left Luggage, directed by Jeroen Krabbé, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1998 while The Letter by Richard Paul Evans was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Sparsh. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Grim Fandango or Warhammer: Dark Omen.
