If I could pick only one it's definately Tony Jaa, no wires required!

I am going to have to go with Jet LI all the way. Also he is the real deal. He used to fight in tournaments before he got into the movie biz. Jackie Chan is great at choreographing funny fight sequences, which is mad cool.

i'd have to say jackie chan, he's adorable, funny, and does his own stunts, sometimes getting really hurt in the process, now that's manly!

Jet Li, Tony Jaa, and Chow Yun Fat. Those would be my top 3

I do like Jackie Chan for his silliness. Not a fan of bruce lee, though I do admire him for his skill.

I notice that while we have seen so many of the big stars no one has mentioned Steven Seagal is it over his limited acting abilities or his general lack of conditioning?

My favorites include Bruce Lee, Chuck Norris, David Carradine, Tom Laughlin and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar!

Yes, Kareem made a martial arts film with Brice Lee because Bruce was so impressed with Kareem's abilities and the grace of movement, agility and quickness from such a big man.

Love ya,

Sally

Hi Hun,

Got to go with Bruce Lee. I heard he was so quick

the film had to be "slowed down" on playback , if you

know what I mean. Any way, for me he ruled, Luv,viv :)

Steven Seagal!...no no seriously.

Jackie Chan. I think he did some amazing stuff in those old movies, and hey....he actually could fight and talk at the same time. Amazing I know.

Jet Li would be right behind him...he's also not bad at the fighting and talking thing...amazing.

Just cause it's an action movie doesn't mean that you shouldn't know how to act. Or am I asking for too much?

Is it martial arts?

One and only = Jason Statham. He makes the genre worthwhile for me.

Bruce Lee is the G.O.A.T. (Greatest of all Time)...he whooped Norris' butt for reals in the movie they did together, i think i heard he broken something, like a rib, or arm or something. Bruce Lee without hesitation!

Jet Li or Jackie Chan are the ones I like to watch the most. I love to watch the out takes after the movie is over with Jackie Chan. He always does his own stunts and always messes up.

Bruce Lee by far! He always seemed to have been real to me. Jackie Chan is cool but Bruce Lee is just absolutely insane to watch fight.

Bruce Lee is my favorite.... no contest. Next David Caradine though he is not a real martial artist.

I used to love Seagal something fierce. His first three movies rocked. Then he got stupid. That being said, I'm a big fan of Jet Li.

luv

      Up early.  230am and just couldn’t get back to sleep as my Mind is still buzzing from yesterday’s events. I posted about it in another thread as to not junk up this one with my drivel.    Just now getting my first mug of coffee in me then a quick shower.  Gotta keep the wound clean.  More planning, calling, and receiving of guests who hopefully will be buying more of Shawns hobby toys.   I hope everyone has a wonderful day!

      Well GF when I get there we all will have to hit some stores. I do like shopping and I can literally abuse a clearance rack section in minutes.  I show up to a dressing room with a look on my face like “ Yeah right!  5 items only my arse!”  And then proceed to cram my card in there with me.  Lol Id love to go a shop with you! I can speak for Patti and say she is a bit of a shop-acholic too and she is tall as well.  Perhaps she can point you to some places out there.

      So this Monday was an amazing day.  As some may be aware I have plans to move across country to be with @Patti Anne and start a new life as Shawna.  Leaving VT and Shawns life closed and in my past.  Our plans were coming together but we really had not set any real dates but we finally planned a week long trip for me to go visit, see the house and area and just meet Patti face to face finally.  This was set for June 20th.  An obvious condition to moving is finding a job.  So during my Orchi recovery time off I decided one task was to start job hunting.  So I polished up my resume and changed it to read “Shawna Leigh Lxxxxxxxxx” and I uploaded it on Indeed last Thursday evening. Friday morning a job pops up for a Biomedical Equipments Technician in the VA hospital 15 minutes from Patti’s house and I naturally apply as this is what my current job is.  Less then 30 minutes later I get an answer and request for a phone interview Monday morning which I accept.  Patti and I are just beside ourselves with this lucky opportunity but we contained it since nothing was set or done.  It’s just an interview.   Monday morning they call.  Long story short they want to hire me.  Pay me $15k more per year then I’m making now and a $1500 moving bonus.  Ummmmm.  Ok I can do that! The catch.  They need me like yesterday.  “When can you be out there?” They ask.  I had told them originally in my cover letter I planned to move to Oregon in late July/early August but give me an hour and let me make some arrangements. So I naturally call Patti and the “fun” begins!  My Ex now roommate gets involved and we all try to figure out the quickest reasonable exit plan for me to be out there.   So I call back and tell them. “Give me an offer letter by this Thursday and I will put in my two weeks notice. I will need 5 days to travel and I can be there on site Monday the 29th.”  Deal! Done and my offer letter was emailed within minutes.  Holy cow everything was a whirlwind after that.   So I spend the rest of the day making arrangements to move, sell my crap, make plans. Etc.  Then later yesterday evening out of the blue an old HS acquaintance contacts me saying she wants to send me a ton of clothing purses and lots of other things. All I need to do is pay the shipping. We Chatted for a while and  it was unbelievable what she plans to just give me.  Sent all sorts of pictures of her “horde” and believe me. It’s All high end things. Purses jewelry clothing coats jackets dresses. Etc.  Apparently she is in therapy for a very bad and negative shopping compulsion and part of that is purging her collection and “I’m helping her by taking it.” She said.  Well I love to help people do what’s a girl to do? I barely knew her in HS but we are friends on Facebook.  She has been following my transition there and decided to message me with the request and offer.   So now I have hundreds of items costing thousands of dollars being shipped to my new home for the price of “just shipping”.  Yes Mondays are not so bad a day for me anymore wouldn’t you agree?

      Dang it. Now I’m going to have to find one thst suits me.

      Wow, that is not an acceptable behavior at all! Besides these bad words, your boss can't dictate your hair style and use that as a criterion for work safety. You need to cut your hair but your boss is ok with you wearing a hat while not having a hair cut? Great logic. Case closed, ignored. I feel very sorry you have to deal with such crap Emily 😢. Unbelievable.

      I love how powerful and intentional the words you used are in the second to last verse. Maybe if the addiction verse was in couplets then it would build up even more tension for that awesome verse where the woman inside takes hold. I see ur point about having written it a certain way the first time, but I also love the unpredictable effect we got in verse 2 from the abab cdcd rhyme scheme you use. It's uplifting to see all the darkness of the eviction verse get reversed through this image of an actualized assertive lady.

      Thanks, girls!  I had not thought of Old Navy and I didn't know they have a tall section.  I like their styles.  I'm just a simple country gal... fashion and fancy is not my thing.  I need clothes to work around the house and yard and just a couple of going out on the town outfits (which I don't do very often).  I like casual, comfortable clothes but I'm very picky about certain things.  Hiking in the hills and birding requires pockets.  I have some cargo pants but don't want to wear them all the time.  I know everyone is wearing leggings and skinny jeans but I don't like clingy pants.  I like straight leg or boyfriend cuts.  You know, I just realized I haven't shopped in 10 years!  😲  I am so out of touch, lol.   Keep the suggestions coming.

      I can’t believe I missed this too. It’s very good. With a few word changes it would describe much of my feeling with my journey thus far. Great work!👍   Susan R🌷

      Thanks, you two!  I thought my efforts hsd gone unnoticed, then out of the blue I get comments!   I agree that the flow of the story suffered a little in the second version, probably because I wrote the first, well, first.  That's the "native environment" the story was born in, and in moving to couplets, some of the flow was broken.   I appreciate your replies, it's so nice to be noticed, but more importantly, I feel like I have shared something.
    • Susan R
      Wow, you look incredible as a blonde. I knew that touch of makeup would make all the difference.   Susan R🌷
