First and foremost, I would like to apologize for your email addresses. I have tried repeatedly to have them switched to your requested handles, but it is, after all, Tony’s system, and he keeps switching them back. (Except for yours, Mr. Barton. For some reason, he seems to have deemed this choice acceptable.)
Secondly: it has come to my attention that each of you has, in one way or another, been accosted by Tony with demands that you move into the Tower as soon as humanly possible. As I know how Tony can be, I wanted to make sure to shoot you a little note clarifying our position. We — that is, Tony and I — of course welcome each of you to join us in calling the Tower home, but you are not, as Tony may have suggested, under any obligation to do so. If you decide not to move in, that is perfectly acceptable, and I assure you that there will be no follow through on any threats to that may have been made to: stalk you; release feral cats in and/or around your homes; infect your apartments with a variety of insects including but not limited to bedbugs; blame you personally for the downfall of human civilization when inevitably the great enemy comes and you’re not there due to your selfish decision to retain your own residence; use technological prowess to make your bed smell constantly of tuna fish; buy your buildings and demolish them.
Though it may seem counterintuitive, this is, for better or worse, how Tony sees fit to make friends. He is not particularly good at it, as I am sure you have all come to realize. This is why I have copied Colonel Rhodes and Dr. Banner on this email — their first-hand experience in Tony’s peculiar brand of affection may help you through the upcoming period of transition, as I am unfortunately far too busy to shepherd you all any further. Please direct any further inquiries, phone calls, concerns, and angry shrieking rants to either Colonel Rhodes or Dr. Banner, both of whom have repeatedly expressed willingness to commiserate in frustration on the topic of Tony.
I hope this has been helpful, and I look forward to seeing you all in the future.
Chief Executive Officer
it’s the worst reason to be perpetually suicidal but it’s so hard to see everyone else in relationships that i’m too ordinary and awkward to achieve
i will never have what other girls have
it’s so hard
i am sick of people telling me it’s going to be fine and i will find someone and i’m sick of trying to justify it by being happy on my own
i hate that my measure of self worth has finally been brought to this
I’m going to have Shatner sign one of these. Which? Both?
'jim—captain, i have already experienced first-hand your…prowess at driving twentieth century land vehicles from earth, and the automobile known colloquially as the “car” at least provided better safety precautions than the motorcycle. therefore i must decline your offer to “hop on” and i will be notifying doctor mccoy to be on high alert until you remove your ankles from the handlebars, where they most assuredly do not belong.'
I always wondered how this photoshoot went. Seems like somebody heard my prayers…
