Hi! Orson the Cat, here! This blog's usual writer, David M. Lynch, a/k/a The
Foxster Silver Fox, has been really busy writin' a multi-part story on this blog, and feudin' with his former writin' partner, Skip Simpson, on their Simpson/Lynch Studios blog. So he allowed me to write today's Theme Thursday post.
I was glad he finally let me write somethin' on this blog. I ain't got any airtime since this post, and this one, and this one on his old "David'Z RantZ" blog.
And the good part for you is that I'm nowhere near as long-winded as The Silver Fox is!
I was originally gonna post about the castle in Citizen Kane, since I was named after the great Orson Welles himself, but while doin' a Google image search, I found the followin' photo of a cat that looks a lot like me, and it inspired me.
So today, fellow kitties, I'm gonna leave you with some informational Tender Chunks about Castle Dracula!
You probably know that Bram Stoker's fictional Dracula character was inspired by a real guy nicknamed Vlad the Impaler. But did you know that there are not one, but at least three castles which lay claim to being the "real" Castle Dracula?
This is, like, the #1 tourist trap in Romania, known as Bran Castle.
The there's this one, properly known as The Hunyad Castle (Castelul Huniazilor or Castelul Corvineştilor in Romanian).
But it's the Poenari Castle, also known as Poenari Citadel (Cetatea Poenari in Romanian), which seems to have the most authentic claim to fame as far as how much time ol' Vlad actually spent here.
If you want to see more great shots of Poenari Castle, click here.
And for more info on Castle Dracula, you can start here, if you wanna take the time. Me, I gotta go use the litter box!
So... Thanks for your Friskies!
(Now, who the heck is that knocking on the door at this ungodly hour? Better go see...)
