Each week The Advocate asks a different “quiz taker” for his or her current favorites in pop culture.

QUIZ TAKER: Katie Guasco, 30, director of communications for Visit Baton Rouge.

WHAT I’M LISTENING TO: “My current favorites are Bruno Mars and Maroon 5’s latest CDs. Love them. My 2-year-old actually determines what’s on the car radio, and right now, that would be the Golden Band from Tigerland’s CD on repeat. I’m an LSU alum, and I have never heard the band more than I have in the past few months! Geaux Tigers!”

WHAT I’M READING: “Here’s where I’m supposed to say something intellectual and inspiring, but my favorite reads are romantic comedies that typically turn into movies later (ie: ‘Bridget Jones’ Diary’). After looking at publications all day, it’s fun to just curl up with the Kindle and get lost in a sappy story.”

WHAT I’M WATCHING: “Quite a variety: Top TV faves are ‘30 Rock,’ ‘How I Met Your Mother,’ ‘Glee,’ ‘Game of Thrones,’ ‘Mad Men’ and ‘Modern Family.’ ‘Downton Abbey’ is on my Netflix queue, and I can’t wait to start it!”

WHERE I’M SURFING (ON THE INTERNET): “Http://www.VisitBatonRouge.com!”

WHAT’S YOUR GUILTY PLEASURE? “Social media surfing while watching TV. Talk about media overload!”


Any plans for the spring?

“It will be eventful! I’m having a baby boy in late April, so my plans are pretty much covered for the next several months … make that years!”
