It was Thursday, under the sign of Cancer. The US president was George W. Bush (Republican). In that special week of June people in US were listening to Do I Make You Proud by Taylor Hicks. In UK I Wish I Was A Punk Rocker (With Flowers In My Hair) by Sandi Thom was in the top 5 hits. Oborona Sevastopolya, directed by Vasili Goncharov, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2006 while The Saboteurs by W.E.B. Griffin and William E. Butterworth IV was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching The Lab. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Deal or No Deal or Battleship/Connect Four/Sorry!/Trouble.
