Thursday 29 January 2009

It was Thursday, under the sign of Aquarius (see planets position on January 29, 2009). The US president was Barack Obama (Democratic). In that special week of January people in US were listening to Just Dance by Lady GaGa. The Private Lives of Pippa Lee, directed by Rebecca Miller, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2009 while Beat The Reaper by Josh Bazell was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Trust Me. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Age of Pirates 2: City of Abandoned Ships or Archibald's Adventures.
But much more happened that day: find out below..

You can also have a look at the whole 2009 or at January 29 across the years.
