My wit, intellect, and awesome ninja skills.

I'm pretty technical (good with science and math), so I guess I could help problem solve?
I can also cram myself into small spaces, so that could be useful if I needed to get somewhere small :D (if I join the circus, it'll be as a contortionist or a clown).

Uh...Well I could crochet clothes. I mean, I have a lot of yarn, we all might end up wearing rainbow-colored shirts and vests, but it's better than nothing at all...right?
I've also watched enough Survivor to know how to light a fire, I'm pretty creative and intuitive, and...if worse comes to worse, there's a lot of me to go around if we get hungry (Kidding, of course).

If I were on my own; I'm a decent marksman (that equals food and protection), I can start a fire with flint & steel (purify water, cook), and I'm sure with practice these skills would get much better. If in a group, I could employ those skills as well as those of an entertainer. I can tell stories, recall history, and play a few tunes on my guitar (and believe me, I will not be leaving my guitar behind). Why an entertainer? Because I believe that even when life is absolutely horrible, there has to be something there to enjoy; even if you have to make it yourself.
