You're Not Clean Enough To Bring Into The House

by Rainier on Jan. 17, 2011 @ 12:00 a.m. PST | Filed under MOTD

We pretty much did what we'd set out to do yesterday: nothing.

We watched NCIS, Mad Men, Smallville, Human Target and a stand-up comedy bit from Louis CK, which was totally hilarious and so, so politically incorrect.

While the holidays have been over, we finally finished off the last of our New Year's dinner leftovers, and tomorrow we will be stripping down the Christmas tree and bid it adieu.

Last night was also the 68th Annual Golden Globe Awards, and The Social Network seems to be the big winner, so it'll be interesting to see how well it does at the Oscars.
