It should come as no surprise to you that we're not-so-secret nerds... And that we have a total geek girl crush on Simon Pegg (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, Star Trek, etc). Something about those spindly legs, red hair, and quick wit just makes us gooey, so we couldn't NOT pick up a copy of his new autobiography, Nerd Do Well: A Small Boy's Journey to Becoming a Big Kid ($17). Reading his life story, which includes his confessing to Carrie Fisher when they met that he used to kiss her picture every night, among other anecdotes, just made us want to pick him up & take him home with us. Mrs. Pegg* has a nice ring to it...
*Yes, we know, he's married with a baby daughter. Le sigh.
