Thursday 31 July 2008

It was Thursday, under the sign of Leo. The US president was George W. Bush (Republican). In that special week of July people in US were listening to I Kissed A Girl by Katy Perry. Pineapple Express, directed by David Gordon Green, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2008 while The Dark Side by Jane Mayer was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Mummy Forensics. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Barnyard Blast: Swine of the Night or Blitz: The League II.
But much more happened that day: find out below..

You can also have a look at the whole 2008 or at July 31 across the years.
