About Anne Lee

Also known as apricotsushi. Anne can be written with the kanji for apricot (杏), and sushi was the most quintessentially Japanese thing I could think of when I was 13, resulting in my goofy, albeit memorable, nickname.

    wooohooo! Manko-san!! Weird ruling but understandable if she was kajaking around in the open, from a law standpoint…that I don’t agree with, but if it was only in the sex shop? Weird.

    Anyway I was thinking about the “prude” part of you both. Isn’t that ok? Yes society may have formed you to feel weirded out by nakedness but isn’t that ok? As long as you don’t pass judgement and try to control what others do, as long as it isn’t hurting anyone, then it’s ok to feel discomfort and if you wish work on it yourself? Me I have no shame, I felt angry the first time in a free the nipple march but that was due to all the men who I thought was joining up where just there to take pictures of my sisters walking topless next to me. Anyway, it’ll be fun in 20-30 years as we see more and more women be the majority in power, check your school charts, and more of them have funded their studies as what is seen as “sleazy” today. “Meh” I say to that. Their body, their decision and if it also helps lowering the trafficking I see no loss. Anyway, it’ll be fun to see how society will change. Can we make it before then or is it a war of atrocity against the old guard? Will it be a pyrrhic victory as we in turn stand in the place of the old guard by then? Interesting times are always ahead, yes indeed ^^

    Also yeah, Fjällräven, was when I was a kid, something for kids to use out in the woods or when we where hiking in nature. Skoggsmulle(for smaller kids getting used to nature), Scouts for always being ready and then we were done ^^

    Ps. Yeah I would call us Friends Anne. ^^

    • Yay friends!! XD

      I have to say I think that’s very brave of your sis to join a free the nipple march! And I don’t know if we were clear enough on the show, but I consider myself very sex positive and body positive! I think it just depends on our personality, how we like to express ourselves… I am all for freedom of expression for everyone, but I wouldn’t necessarily choose to express myself that way, you know? But sometimes I think it’s funny, because I am into a lot of things that might make people think I’m more “wild” than I actually am. Hah!

      I still love Skoggsmulle, best name (and logo) ever 😉

      • Franggio Hogland

        Ah not my sister literally but more of a friend since child hood 🙂
        Oh and yeah I think I got the message way back that you are, both of you, cool people and sex/body positive.
        As for expressing one self..that’s just the thing it’s your decision on how to do it and as long as you aren’t hurting anyone, or stealing my pancakes, all is good 🙂 kinda why I blabbed about the old guard as I’m certain they also had the best intentions and I’m looking forward to what my best intentions will be interpreted as 😉
        Yes I think about that. There is maybe two three things in this world I know I own and non of them are important hahaha well maybe to a hungry person that loves pancakes (^o^)
        Yes I’m Bragging, my pancakes are hotter than a Vesuvian deep cleanse on Mercury.

        • I don’t think I’ve ever met anyone who loves pancakes as much as you, haha!

  • Heh, sorry the season’s not been to your liking Anne! The only show that I’ve found consistent (aside from the sequels/continuing shows like JoJo and Ushio & Tora) has been Kiznaiver and Re:Zero. Dunno if you’re looking for a comedy, but there is Haven’t You Heard? I’m Sakamoto. It’s not that funny, but I know some people who have laughed at it, and it’s mostly just weird to see how Sakamoto reacts to certain things.

    • Oh I don’t think it’s that I don’t like anything, I just haven’t found a show that I’ve really stuck with… I am enjoying Kiznaiver but maybe I’m just feeling to busy with work to really watch a lot of episodes these days XD;; I’ve heard of Sakamoto! I should look into it, but I’m not entirely sure it’s my kind of humor… (just from the gifs I’ve seen haha)

      I still really want to try Joker Game! I need to wrangle my husband for that… Honestly I don’t know anything about Re:Zero, but if you’re enjoying it, I might have to try it out!
