Tiny Avocados

I can't stop thinking about these tiny avocados. I've never seen them before coming out here. 5 in a bag for only one dollar. And they solve the classic avocado problem I always come across: one can't really store an avocado without it getting brown, so one has to eat the whole thing in one sitting. But these are the perfect amount of avocado!

Well I'm moving to San Francisco Bay area California tomorrow. A lot must fit into my thin carry-on bag, including my trusty I-Pod. With some helpful sewing reminder tips from my Mom, I made this padded case out of bubble wrap and an old T-shirt I never wear (yes... it is a Pearl Jam t shirt...)
