How exactly did an art material dedicated to sculpture and and frescos, come to double as a term for getting thoroughly, completely, obliterated via alcohol? My guess is it had something to do with the Romans and Greeks. Remember how those cultures of antiquity stayed hosting giant drunken parties, then waking up the next morning and creating La Pieta and David and other marble masterpieces? I feel as if somehow during the Renaissance that same "drink hard at the royal court and then work hard as their patron to create real cool art" attitude came back to the surface. Then perhaps college students were studying both of these time periods while also getting super drunk, and that was the birth of the term plastered. James would say this is a crazy Monica theory, and the real answer to the earlier question is probably out there on the internet.
These are the pictures of the actual brunch that inspired this post. I'm super ocd about categorizing posts and my mind wouldn't be able to pick between putting this post in the music category or the personal category so I just made things easy for myself and split the content in two because #strategy. It's been a few weeks and here are the rest of the pictures!
After the brunch, we decided to partake in some culture and we made our way to the Met an hour before closing time. This meant we only saw a handful of exhibits, but those exhibits were excellent fun. Of course I saw the Charles James gowns exhibit. Of course I had to take foolish pictures next to the statues. Of course I left a bit early because my feet hurt (the most typical of Monica actions), but it was great seeing Sasha and Savanna as always.
