Dr. Adaeze Salisu

“Who is this woman?” Yaldabaoth the Irish leprechaun asked his mother Sophia the Greco-Egyptian Gnostic goddess of wisdom, “And why are you showing me this photograph of her?”.

“I thought since you’ve been doing cloak and dagger work on behalf of Peter Whitstable the man they call the Fox Mulder of Interpol,” Sophia explained, “You might take more notice if a photograph was shown of her. Like the leader of the Mission Impossible team looked at photographs of people before a recording self destructed in 10 seconds.”

“Nothing is going to self-destruct around here in 10 seconds is it?” Yaldabaoth looked around the room with concern.

“Of course not,” Sophia laughed, “Anyhow, now that I’ve got your attention with that photograph, the woman is Dr. Adaeze Salisu the head of psychiatry at Saint Raphael’s Hospital in London. I want you to see her.”

“You want me to see a psychiatrist?” Yaldabaoth’s jaw dropped and a gold doubloon coin fell out of his mouth.

“About your drinking problem,” Sophia sighed, “You must admit you’ve had a severe drinking problem for centuries.”

“And why can’t I have it for several more centuries?” Yaldabaoth protested.

“You should really be doing more with your life than drinking,” Sophia looked glum.

“But like you yourself said I’ve been doing cloak and dagger work on behalf of Peter Whitstable the Fox Mulder of Interpol,” Yaldabaoth pointed out.

“And how has that been working out for you?” Sophia asked, “You’ve died twice when you met one of your fellow cloak and dagger secret operative associates the Lakota Sioux Princess Tanaka. And then on another occasion you were mooned by British Prime Minister Boris Johnson.”

“Cloak and dagger work wasn’t meant to be a bed of roses,” Yaldabaoth got the feeling he was sitting on thorns and stood up.

“Anyhow I’ve booked an appointment for you this afternoon,” Sophia smiled.

“You have?” Yaldabaoth was shocked.

Later as Yaldabaoth walked the streets of London in the direction of Saint Raphael’s Hospital, “Why would I need to see a psychiatrist?”.

He looked down an alleyway and noticed a stegosaurus sniffing a line of laundry.

“On the other hand…” Yaldabaoth took off his little green hat and scratched his head.

Later in the office of Dr. Adaeze Salisu.

Looking at Dr. Adaeze Salisu, he said, “I thought I as the patient was supposed to be the one lying on the couch while you as the psychiatrist sat on the chair.”

“I like doing things a little differently in my practice,” Dr. Adaeze Salisu smiled.

“I liked your sign on the door that said THE DOCTOR IS IN,” Yaldabaoth smiled, “I don’t suppose Psychiatric Help is still 5c like it was in the days of Charlie Brown, Lucy, Snoopy, Linus and the Peanuts gang.”

“No, I’m afraid it’s a lot more than 5c,” Dr. Salisu shook her head.

“Pity,” Yaldabaoth smiled, “I don’t suppose you have anything stronger to drink than that package of Canadian Red Rose Tea I see on your desk.”

    Enjoyed the chapter.

    As soon as I saw Yaldabaoth, I thought of the Infant Annhilator’s album, “The Battle of Yaldabaoth.” Interesting how words instantly bring up other associations.

    That woman is Martha Jones from Dr. Who. I thought it may be another character from another of her shows so I googled “Dr. Adaeze Salisu” and your blog came up as did the pics you used of her. Congratz! You’re famous!!

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      Thanks.

      Glad to hear I’m famous. 🙂

      In what seasons of Dr. Who did she appear playing Martha Jones?

      She plays the woman doctor on New Amsterdam a show I used to watch (namely to look at her).

      However I’ve given up watching it because rather than devoting most episodes to her or even Max the hospital administrator (I always found his character somewhat amusing because he comes across as exactly what would happen if you put someone suffering from the worst case of Attention Hyperactivity Deficit Disorder in all recorded history in charge of a major New York City general hospital) , they concentrate on that slimness challenged fruity psychiatrist and all the psychological problems he has.

      • Marlapaige said,

        Ok. Well I don’t know the show, but “slimness challenged fruity psychiatrist” is a very unique description, I’ll give you that.

        She was with my doctor, David Tennant.

        Shit. I don’t know the season number. But… it came back in ‘05 with Eccelstein. He masters one year with Rose. Then Rose went on to Tennant. He was the doctor for 3 years, and it was Rose, Donna, Martha I think. Unless Martha came first. Damned Davis with his one off episodes! I’m pretty sure she was last though because she left with Jack and married Mickey.

        Sorry. Brain fart? Aneurism? Flat out crazy… whatever. Either way, I would say look at Doctor Who that aired in late 2007 to 2008. At least that’s my best guess.

        I could be a total nerd and actually name episodes and that would be easier for me but this what I’m not guiding you into what I think are the best episodes of her arc.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Okay thanks.

        I’ll look out for 2007-2008. Dr. Who.

      • Marlapaige said,

        That’s what I figured lol. By the way, she was beautiful in the show. I think prettiest companion by far. But then again, she was during my doctor. Jack Harkness was also a companion. And he may actually be the best looking companion male and female.

        The good old days before this new show runner jumped the shark and took the show into proselytizing territory. Is stupid Americans don’t really need him to tell us that our president was a bloviated doofus. We knew that. And to use the first female doctor to do it? That made me mad. But every week is a new sermon and I don’t even really watch anymore because there’s nothing fun or creative. It’s just long speeches. Lots and lots and LOTS of long speeches.

        Ok. Shutting up. 😂

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Yes, Freema Agyeman is a very beautiful woman.

        Perhaps when it’s time for the proselytizing female Dr. Who to give up the ghost and move on to a new incarnation, they can have her meet her end by being run over by a bunch of proselytizing bicycle riding Mormons.

      • Marlapaige said,

        I cannot believe I just said that. The bicycle riding Mormons became unicycle Mormons. You’re starting to make me crack up at your jokes then take them seriously enough to respond in kind. Next thing you know, we’ll be touring together doing a weird abbot and Costello that only we understand 😂

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        “Who’s on first?”.

        “It can’t be. The TARDIS is on 2nd.”

      • Marlapaige said,

        😂 🤣 last night I forgot the name of Costello. Only his first name popped into my head. I caved and asked my phone assistant. It misunderstood me, of course, and I ended up asking three times. I could have looked it up, but it was funny. I asked “what comedians that did who’s on first?” Before answering correctly its first answers were:
        “That’s right.”
        “What was on second, who was on first.”

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Yes, I can see that happening with a digital phone assistant.

      • Marlapaige said,

        Look, sometimes the reactions from the assistants can be quite funny. Sometimes they’re programmed to be, and sometimes it just turns out to be funny completely by accident. Always find something that makes you laugh. It’s good for your soul

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        My friend Daniel always had a fun time arguing with his spell check.

        Sometimes the funniest comments he made on my blog were when he forgot to edit and correct the auto-correct corrections his spell check made.

      • Marlapaige said,

        Hey man, sometimes ya just gotta live on the edge LOL

        My autocorrect on my phone changes the most basic words into the most complicated words that make no sense. My spell check is always overwhelmed because I can’t spell even a teensy little bit. My web browser at work doesn’t have spell check so I have to write everything on Word so it can tell me with bright red lines that I need to go back to grammar school before I can do anything on the internet. It’s really bad.

        But between my horrendous spelling and the overworked autocorrect trying to make up for the spelling, sometimes I can’t even read what I wrote and I have to go back and switch everything. ITs frustrating, but it’s funny when someone else misses something.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Indeed it is.
