Quiche Croissant by Anthony Esquivel

Bladerism, is a modernized hobo lifestyle.  Bladers, with very little income, can visit each other in any city in the world, locate a friend, of a friend, of a friend that is associated with blading.  If a blader has floor space (fingers crossed for a couch), there is always space to host a friend that you may have met that day.  Although the amazing thing, is that for meeting a blader for only a few minutes, I always find a home, a stronger bond than any friendship I have with outsiders - the people that don't blade.   Blader's know the same blading icons, we have seen the same blading videos, and although we may have grown up in a different location, we have shed blood, have fought security guards (sometimes even cops), and share the same triumph of overcoming our fears to jump a gap or grind something we did not think was possible.  It's a comradere we share no matter the distance.  It is a really unique lifestyle to meet someone and feel as if we had met a long lost friend, someone we had known for years.

Although we are all bladers, we still vary in our lifestyle according to our environment.  Learning never ends and I learned a new recipe in Chicago.  Anthony made breakfast affordable by taking a cheap classic grocery item and made it healthy by adding veggies and eggs.
