Na Ming is a Chinese lady who collects historical vases and bowls.  She bowls very fast, but nobody wants to believe a diminutive little lady with a pigtail could probably beat any male cricketer with a demon reputation.

Last I checked, the stair-rail is spelled with one N...

RACING...

It used to mean going very fast on a horse or in a car in order to reach an arbitrary line first.  Now it means ignoring my arthritis long enough to reach the front door before the delivery driver decides he can't leave my parcel in case one of the three passers-by we get each day decides to make off with it.

To have one's liver removed.  Either surgically, for sound medical reasons, or by some homicidal maniac who wants to eat it.  Possibly with a side dish of kidney Beans to extend the 'offal' theme.

HOMICIDAL

Jo, I knew it looked wrong.

Also known as one's MO. It is the homogenous method of disposing of unwanted things which just happen to be maybe considered on the human side, but that seems so crass.

To pose like a statue of Diana the Huntress.  With or without the bow and arrows.  It looks really good on some women, but definitely wrong for men.

A kind of imaginary friend to blame for all the things you did wrong, and all the wrong things that were done to you.  Also available in male form.

Another kind of imaginary friend, cited variously by mediums (media?) and men who WERE coming straight home after work but got kidnapped and forced to drink strong liquor until they couldn't find their own front door.
