"Nerd do well"

I guess you already heard about Simons kinda-so called- Autobiography.
I read the first few pages online, then decided that it must be HILARIOUS hearing actually reading the stuff.
So I bought the audiobook. After a mayor struggle with Itunes I finally got to hear it (while reading the ebook).

I highly recommend it (the reasons will be mentioned soon), and also you should get BOTH the book and the audiobook, because he leaves out stuff here and there, sometimes even a few pages, but hearing him telling these stories is just fucking funny.

You might, after reading a small exerpt (I'm just gonna TEASE you because you have to read it yourself!), you might wanna run to the next store, getting your fingers on this book as fast as you can.

I had an odd crush on a boy called Ross but it wasn’t motivated by any infant manifestations of sexual lust. He was just really lovely and I wanted to be near him. He was about three years older than me and I remember following him around the playground on one occasion, just aching to be his friend. I also used to frequently snog my friend Kyle because it made all our other friends hoot with laughter. I hadn’t been rendered homophobic by received notions of masculinity at the age of six and I had no problem doing ‘film star kisses’ with another boy if it meant getting a big laugh.

(there is even more, I swear!!)

Also you might love the fictional parts of the book, where Simon describes himself as a kind of superhero... They are very funny and the way Simon reads it makes you piss your pants ;D

Not if I can help it,’ replied Pegg, standing up to reveal his great body which was muscular but not too big
(like Brad Pitt in Fight Club). ‘I just need to find a little inspiration.’
