Scarlett Martin’s life is spinning out of control.

Obsessed

Eric. Eric. Eric. She can’t get her mind off of him. She watches his pizza commercial constantly, and not even her best friend Dakota can snap her out of it. But soon, business picks up at work when her boss signs a new client.


Little Miss Perfect

Chelsea is a little-miss-perfect Broadway star. Her mother controls her life, monitoring her eating habits and forcing her to stay in perfect shape. But Scarlett’s responsibilities go beyond Chelsea. She’s in charge of spying on Chelsea’s brother, Max, who is new to Scarlett’s school. But his trouble-making ways is making Scarlett’s life miserable.


Crime and Punishment

Maybe both Trump and West have egos bigger than their mansions, but at least Donald knows what he's doing. Kanye's just a bonehead.

His wholesale campaign is a joke. Is it really not that obvious? I don't even think he is qualified to be president. I think it's just a distraction.

Let's get Trumping. "rainbowpoptart" wrote: This is the biggest, of the few, problems I have with Trump's thoughts. Illegal immigrants know they're breaking the law by coming into the country without following our policies; they don't just walk over the border like "Hey I'm in the USA now", they come from underground tunnels. The wall isn't going to do anything expect make Mexico's economy even worse, which is going to make more Mexicans not want to live there anymore, thus meaning more are going to want to come into the U.S, then there are going to be even more illegal immigrants. It isn't going to solve the problem, it's going to add to it.   Underground tunneling? Tunnels are used for high profile items or individuals.
