#6. How did you come up with your blog name, “The Bored Side Of The Phone.”?
Ans: This is a really good question! Thanks for dropping this one in the comments!
Well, I was just using a title generator to see what weird/funny titles you could use for anything; and I happened to see a title that was simply wacky and cool. Using that title as my inspiration, I took the words “bored” and “phone” ; and after 20 minutes of wordplay, I got “The Bored Side Of The Phone”.
Pooja G’s questions:
#1. What is your favorite thing about blogging?
Ans. Reading other blogger’s posts; and socializing with fellow bloggers. I like the WP Community, because everyone’s so genuine, and friendly with each other (unlike some social media platforms……). I’m pretty sure a majority of us bloggers are comfortable here in WordPress because of these reasons.
#2. What’s your favourite song/songs and why?
Ans: “Tomorrow Comes Today” by Gorillaz, because I love how it’s so calm and melodic, and it gives out old school Gorillaz vibes.
I also like “Primal Scream” by Motley Crue, because I dig Mick Mars’ guitar playing in this song, especially the solo. That’s so badass! 🤘🏼🤘🏼
#1. What’s your favourite book?
Ans. When I was in eighth grade; I had 2 favourite Hardy Boys books. They were: “A Con Artist In Paris” and “X-plosion”. (P.S: It took me 20 minutes just to scout for these titles; because I had long forgotten them 😅)
#2. Favourite TV shows?
Ans. The Middle, Brooklyn Nine Nine, Stranger Things, South Park, Rick and Morty, The Simpsons, Family Guy, Death Note, Aggretsuko, etc.

Just one day, if you get a chance to meet your younger self, what that conservation will be like? 🤭
Ans. This is an epic question! Thanks for asking me this one, Era!
Okay, so the order would be like this then. Get ready to see how I’ve changed through time, and what I would tell my past selves:
- Kindergarten & Primary School: Stay happy always, and PLEASE SLEEP!!! (because I was super hyperactive as a kid)
- Middle School: I’m glad you’ve stood up for yourself, but please get rid of your cringey attitude. I’m also happy you’ve managed to make more friends, and have aced your academics.
- High School: Woohoo, I’m so happy you made it out in one piece! I’m also glad you didn’t fret over exams, and the results! Also, try to be more calm and collected instead of a raging supernova.
If you could have any super power, which one would you choose?
Ans: Telekinesis; because I’m super lazy, and I’d like to play some sort of pranks on people 😜 . I’d also like the ability to talk to animals; because I’m a huge animal lover.
Subbahshini Meenakshi Sunderam’s question:
What is success to you or what you say as a successful life?
Ans: It’s about being happy, chasing your dreams with passion and hard-work, and being independent. Don’t forget about utilizing your time well, because you’ll never regain any time lost/wasted.
Light Of Life’s question:
Tell about your first book. Which one was that?
Ans: As a kid, I think it must’ve been “The Wizard Of Oz”. It’s an all time classic, which I’m pretty sure we’ve all read and loved. Although I was scared of Oz’s giant floating head back then, and it gave me nightmares (to the point where I skipped that chapter, out of fear 😅).
Hope you enjoyed this post, and stay tuned for more stuff. Until then, fellow readers!
