In the choosing photos part I returned to this lovely shot:
Which has one comment urging her to go be a star. Girl is too gorgeous for London.
She's trying, Candice! She's trying!
The photo won't be in the banner, but in the interests of research I clicked on the "like" button to see who might be suddenly liking it every time Cass Brook uploads a photo. Look who likes it:
That is some kind of friendly.
It's really nice that Scott can bed hop like this and the girls stay friends and admire each other's facebook poses. It's almost as pleasant as things tend to be back in Canton when Fedor finishes with Tanith, hops onto Tessa, hops off Tessa, jumps onto Jana, then scoops up Meryl. The girls all stay besties.
Come to think of it - Quebec and Ontario have one-upped Michigan, because Jess and Cass didn't just stay friends after Scott segued to Cass, it strengthened their connection.*
Of course, this shot hit facebook about a month before Cassandra's opening night, which was, as we recall, in "M'ovember", but I don't think it's stretching things to assume Jess had a good idea things were heating up to epic literature proportions and fast between Cassandra Hilborn and Jess's former amoreux.
I also have to wonder why in his photos with his passion du jour, Scott kisses or gets kissed, but Tessa doesn't even hold hands. It's almost like he agrees to double down on making it convincing as long as he's assured Tessa isn't doing anything at all, not even for the camera.
*Boy, if Worlds is the Sham Shindig it's setting up to be, I'm looking for some mega lip locking on instagram and twitter either during Words itself, or afterwards when Scott and Cassandra can finally be together in their swimsuits as Cassandra so eagerly anticipates, highlighted with admiring remarks by Jess. "Trop hot!"
Forget that it's revolting with a child in the picture (or actually, the child is not in the picture, but Daddy's fake girlfriend is, macking all over him). There's some being right to do!
Cassandra's facebook showboating and twitter showboating read like "Look sweetie how hot your dad is for me! I'm hot for him too!"
The boys could learn from the girls here, huh. There was Bryce back in '09, whinging a bit to the camera that it was difficult to see Jessica with her boyfriend (who was Scott MOIR), and here the girls see passing the guy around as a bonding experience.
It's all so role-modely and clean cut and gosh darn Canadian and wholesome it can only have been inspired by the folks in Ilderton Ontario.
P.S. - you know what's really sad? Daddy is the first man in a child's life. I look at the (limited) pictures of Charlie Moir and his daughter, and what appears to be the love and happiness in his face, and I think - I hope this is what it looks like, because that's a lucky little girl.
By any measure, a child of Scott Moir's should be incredibly lucky. An amazing masculine role model. Loving. Incredibly responsible. Works his ass off. Devoted. If there's ever someone willing to show up for the scut, it's him. Treats mommy like gold. Funny. Kind of the template for how a man should be - it's a set up to make any kid feel secure.
But then THIS shit. Trash all that crap because you know what matters? One upmanship. And daddy doesn't have the balls to draw the line.
When you love somebody - it's even WORSE when you come across stuff that's unsettling or confusing. Of course Scott and Tessa will "explain" what we've already seen as well as what we're in for with Worlds 2013. But kids aren't robots you can program and they're not sponges either. They want to see things for themselves and figure it out for themselves and decide for themselves. And what's been done during Scott and Tessa's eligible career is a recipe for insecurity and doubt. Scott, with his own insecurities and ultra sensitivities, ought to be more aware of this than anyone.
