A stand-up paper doll of Mr. T.
|He looked just like this. (nickdye.com)|
This was the most awesome thing that I had ever seen. And it was mine!
It was then that I began crafting and creating what I affectionately called, my "Army of Awesome." They are the defenders of the desk. The warriors of the work station. Everyone should have one.
Just think, if you could form an army with any fictional character, person or animal, who would defend your world....er, desk? It doesn't matter whether they have super strength or are primarily armed with a sharp tongue. You can choose anyone you want. That's the beauty.
For inspiration, I present to you:
Amber's Army of Awesome Top 20
1. Chuck Norris.
2. Han Solo.
3. Wonder Woman.
4. Katniss Everdeen.
5. Bruce Lee.
6. Nacho Libre.
8. Iron Man.
9. Megan (Bridesmaids)
10. Louise Belcher.
11. Rebel Wilson
14. Hit Girl
A young but effective vigilante. Hardened. Sarcastic. Well-versed in blades & guns.
15. Mr. T
A "no excuses" straight-shooter equipped with mad wrestling skills and the look of intimidation. Plus, he rocks a Mohawk.
16. John McClane
A wisecracking, no-nonsense New York cop with an itchy trigger finger and a never-say-die maverick spirit…who resembles my husband.
17. Percy Jackson
18. Optimus Prime
A brave & powerful leader with a strong sense of justice and righteousness. That, and he's a truck.
19. Beatrix Kiddo
Kung Fu master/killing machine equipped with the “Five Point Palm Exploding Heart Technique.” Boom.
20. Tony Montana
Hey, everybody needs a "bad guy."
So, who would make up YOUR "Army of Awesome?" Any changes I should make? Leave me a comment or post your own blog and let me know!
I'm always looking for more recruits...
