Teaser Tuesday: Nerd Do Well by Simon Pegg

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizBof Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

•Grab your current read
•Open to a random page
•Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
•BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
•Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

 

This week I'm enjoying a fabulous autobiography called Nerd Do Wellby Simon Pegg, one of my favourite actors. His film Shaun of the Dead is one of my all-time favourites followed closely by Hot Fuzz. If you haven't seen those films, you're missing out. Seriously, you should go rent/download them right now (I believe they're both rated "R", if that makes any difference to you). It's okay. I'll wait.

In the meantime, here's my teasers from page 21 on my nook (please be forewarned there's a naughty word and some crude humour in the following paragraph, so you might want to move along if such things offend you.):

Remember when only a few people had mobile phones. Generally regarded as an object of derision, you would occasionally see business types clutching these ridiculous grey bricks to their faces and mutter to yourself, 'What a prick.' Nowadays, an eyebrow hardly flutters when we see a ten-year-old child happily texting away. You probably wouldn't notice anyway; you'd be too busy downloading an app that could definitively pinpoint who it was that had just farted in your Tube carriage.
