Ever since reading Lawrence Wright’s Going Clear: Scientology, Hollywood, and the Prison of Belief, which I highly recommend, I think about Scientology roughly, ahhh, just about all of the time. Hahah. In my head it’s like 20% Breaking Bad, 70% Scientology, and 10% various anxieties. But there is this part in that book where Paul Haggis talks about reaching OT VII (which was the highest Operating Thetan level at the time he reached it) and being thought to — at that level — have the ability to control people’s thoughts and actions, as well as energy, space, time, etc. (A v. good deal, and it only costs like 2 billion dollars to get there.) The book mentions how OTs at this level are brought to busy areas and asked to focus on people until they get them to scratch their nose, or cough, or whatever. Haggis ended up not being able to do it, or even really believe that it could be done, which led to doubt about Scientology and his place in Scientology, etc. But what I’m over here thinking is, maybe Paul Haggis didn’t know what the fuck he was talking about, and maybe I’m a OT VII? Because AARON PAUL PET PUPPIES ON TV LAST NIGHT!!!!

Ugh, it was all another ploy for him to shout “BITCH”? Maybe I’m not an OT VII after all. It’s so hard to realize you’re not as far up the ladder as you thought, but it does seem like I’m almost there. You have to admit that I came very close! While we’re here, here is his interview:

  1. Where can I buy that “That’s All BITCH” cross-stitch?

  2. Kelly, I think I have to report you to Ethics for this. It breaks my heart to think you might be a PTS or even an SP, but if you can’t let Aaron Paul yell “Bitch!” as much as he wants I really doubt that you will make much progress up the Bridge. If you don’t watch your step, you’re going to get sent to RPF and you’ll never get to find out how Breaking Bad ends!

  3. Was that Huell that brought in the first puppy??

  4. Love his beard!

  5. 1. That book sounds really interesting and I want to read it

    2. Beard!

    3. The pinkie on my right hand is freezing cold, but all my other fingers are a normal temperature. Guys, what does this mean?

  6. If you ever end up marrying Aaron Paul, you can avoid any unpleasantness by having cats instead of dogs, Kelly. Just saying.

  7. “There appeared to be a brief but notable period in 2013 during which noted dramatic actor Aaron Paul saying ‘bitch’ was considered the absolute fucking height of comedy.”

  8. I thought he was a weird choice for the Sam Beam biopic, but I guess he proved me wrong!

  9. Remember that episode of the Simpsons where Krusty kept making Bart say “I didn’t do it,” until the audience tired of it?

    Still, no worries, I’m sure that with Jesse going on a trip to Belize very soon, heh-heh-heh, Aaron Paul will no longer need to use his catchphrase…
