Each week The Advocate asks a different “quiz taker” for his or her current favorites in pop culture.
QUIZ TAKER: Shelton Jones, 39, co-founder of The Cinderella Project and capital campaign coordinator for the Baton Rouge Speech & Hearing Foundation.
WHAT I’M LISTENING TO: “Amos Lee on Pandora (online radio).”
WHAT I’M READING: “‘The Forgotten Garden,’ by Kate Morton.”
WHAT I’M WATCHING: “Re-runs of ‘Friday Night Lights.’”
WHERE I’M SURFING (ON THE INTERNET): “http://www.SFGate.com, http://www.PoshBrood.com.”
WHAT’S YOUR GUILTY PLEASURE? “Any flavor of gelato from Latte e Miele.”
Do you remember your favorite prom dress?
“It was the ’80s, so the puffier the better. I wore a dress made up of yards and yards of black and green taffeta with rhinestone spaghetti straps and, of course, elbow-length black satin gloves. Clearly, I was channeling Cyndi Lauper.”
EVENT INFORMATION: Since 2008, The Cinderella Project, an all-volunteer organization, has collected evening gowns for girls who cannot afford to buy prom dresses. Thursday from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., Angelique Boutique (17455 Perkins Road) will host “Fashion’s Night Out,” a night of shopping and cocktails to benefit The Cinderella Project.
