I see a big box of knives in my future. And possibly a tetanus shot. Maybe both.

So you know how I put together tiny wooden models when my anxiety is really high so basically I’m surrounded by tiny houses?  I’ve pretty much run out of kits but then I found some in Europe and it was awesome except that everything is metric and I obviously don’t understand metric because I thought I bought two tiny fortune-teller wagons but I put them together and turns out one of them is tiny and adorable:

And the other one is fucking enormous.

Like, it’s so big that I tried to tie it to Dorothy Barker so she could pull it around the kitchen like that Chuckwagon dog food commercial from the 80’s but she super wasn’t into it so instead I decided to put an old taxidermied chipmunk in it but the chipmunk was nailed to an old board so I had to use a knife to pry it loose and then I cut myself and Victor got mad because I was using the good knife on a dead animal but technically I’m using the good knife on a dead animal every time I cut up meat so frankly I think this just proves that I need my own private box of knives.

But I did manage to destroy several pieces of clothing in order to cover the blood stains to make the perfect fortune-telling chipmunk.

I don’t have an ending to this story but I have this, which is even better:

  41. I have actually seen a real life full sized wagon like that in the most fever-dream like way possible. A couple years ago I was driving back from visiting friends in Black Mountain, NC back to where I lived in Spartanburg, SC and since my anxiety makes me unable to drive on interstates, I tend to take the “scenic route” places. It was October and the mountains were foggy as I drove through Hickory Nut Gap way up in the mountains. It’s super windy and slow and full of hairpin turns and the fog was so thick that I could only see about thirty feet in front of me. I came around a hairpin turn and there was the wagon. A legitimate “gypsy” wagon being pulled by two draft horses with two people in loose fitting clothing most appropriate for a ren faire walking alongside. On the side of the wagon it said something about a circus. I thought at first I was hallucinating. Nobody has wagons like that anymore and nobody in their right mind post 1940 would take a wagon through Hickory Nut Gap. But then I remembered where I was. Asheville is an interesting place full of hippies and the valley below me was Home to several communes. I myself went to “Hippie College” not far from there. Turns out life occasionally imitates the absurd.

    It’s amazing how different the color of the wagon is in this and the Instagram video with Ferris. I had to study them to convince myself they are the same wagon. White versus warm beige. Also, while I admire your making a harness for Ferris at all, more ribbon next time? He was not in front of the wagon, it was alongside him. Your cat is too long for your harness.

    Also, I now have “Gypsies, Tramps and Thieves” running through my head. Wonderful chipmunk, whether it already came that way or you had to take just a basic stuffed chipmunk and turn it into a fortune teller today — in which case, kudos, and who already has all those props sitting around the house? YOU do.

    Last thing, what do you do when the house fills up? Do you move the old stuff to a storage facility? I understand making things is vital therapy, but that form of therapy produces artifacts, and the house must surely have overflowed years ago.

    I am so relieved that the knives in question are not for surgery. My anxiety was lessened because somehow I already knew that the surgery was to repair craft-accident inflicted damage and not to remove a body part that suddenly was trying to kill you.

    A meter is a lot like a yard and cm is basically percentage of meter. Is this helpful?

    You should absolutely have your own knives! Then you can yell at Victor for using your knives.
    After getting raked over the coals for the umpteenth time over which towels I was allowed to use for “common household projects and sanitation” or wiping up dog pee, drying a dog, cleaning my hands after working on my bike, etc. I decided to reserve some old worn out towels for just such a purpose and viola! I am permanently out of the dog house…uh, well not really…but hope springs eternal.

    OMG THIS IS AN EPIPHANY, the best thing I have read today, I now have hope 😂😘😍: “Victor got mad because I was using the good knife on a dead animal but technically I’m using the good knife on a dead animal every time I cut up meat “

    Someone suggested Chipsy Rose Lee as a name. I laughed out loud. I vote for that one.

  153. I’ve never really considered having a spirit animal, ’cause I could never really think of a good one. But if I ever were to get one, a blood-stained, taxidermied chipmunk dressed as a fortune teller seems about right…

  154. On behalf of a Romani friend… please skip the “gypsy” puns. The English word “gypsy” has negative connotations and isn’t used by the Romani themselves. I’ll leave it at that.

  156. You know, when I read through the comments, my mind goes about 900 other different ways. Dorothy Barker really needs to get her act together. We love her and so look forward to her appearances and don’t want her to have to have a time out in the cat backpack. I do love that she’s a diva, tho. This also makes me want to know more about your neighbors. They cannot possibly appreciate the genius they have living among them. Love you, Jenny!

  160. Jenny, your fans want to know what you’ll do when you start running low on space. I would love to suggest you put some of your built kits onto an auction site. For charity or for you, I don’t care.

  174. So it is obvious you need “knife” gloves – buy Two – so you have one for both hands since you also are accident prone, just a little – maybe? You should own your own knives that you can use on undead or dead anything might be a good idea? Hmmm…And who the hell stuffs a chipmunk anyway? Are they on drugs or should be on drugs? Everything is lovely, not so sure about a stuffed dead rodent!

  175. Honestly surprised no one has recommended the rainbow knives yet. You could have your own set of really pretty knives for your hobbies. You could pry taxidermied animals off of boards, dismember antique dolls, chop up mice for your disabled owl friends in the backyard, open fan mail, and put some cream cheese on a bagel if that’s what makes your skirt fly up. Plus, shiny.
    I bought a set for my sister, and she has one of those magnet things that lets you hang them on the wall. Equal parts mythical, ethereal, and dangerous. So fun.
