Michelle Trachtenberg is anything but an ordinary 17-year-old. Currently, the actress plays the mystery-laden character of Buffy's little sister Dawn Summers on UPN's Buffy the Vampire Slayer. She is perhaps best known for her starring role in Harriet the Spy, opposite Rosie O'Donnell, for which she won the Best Lead Actress in a Feature Film award from Young Artists of Hollywood.

A native New Yorker, Trachtenberg began her acting career at the age of four when she appeared in her first television commercial. Since then, she has appeared in over 100 national spots and in starring roles both in film and on television.

In 1999, Trachtenberg starred opposite Matthew Broderick in the live-action feature film Inspector Gadget. Her other feature credits include roles in the independent films Can't Be Heaven, The Cage and Melissa.

Daytime television fans will remember Trachtenberg from her role as the autistic Lily Montgomery on All My Children, at which time the drama also starred Sarah Michelle Gellar. She was also a series regular on the Nickelodeon series The Adventures of Pete & Pete. Trachtenberg's other television credits include guest starring roles on Meego, Guys Like Us, Figure It Out, Dave's World, Law & Order, Saturday Night Live, Clarissa Explains It All and Space Cases, as well as the television movies A Father's Choice opposite Peter Strauss and Mary McDonnell, and Christmas in Our Home Town with Melissa Gilbert.

For the past seven years, Trachtenberg has been an active spokesperson for R.A.D.D., DARE America, The Starlight Foundation and many others. Her contributions to the fight against drugs earned her the prestigious responsibility of representing the youth of America at CNN's headquarters in Atlanta, where she helped President Clinton launch The Coalition for a Drug Free America campaign.

In her spare time, Michelle enjoys swimming, rollerblading, ice-skating, bicycling and writing short stories.

I fell asleep the other night watching Not Another Teen Movie but it's not like it sounds, I swear! It was really late, I was just really tired and I've seen the movie before. *waves to Mia* We haven't talked but I love you. I'm quite the antisocial lurker, aren't I? I'm basically only social with the Buffy people and I feel terrible. I'm really a shy person and my Buffy crew is like my safe zone. I'm not super social like Eliza but I don't dislike anyone I don't talk to. Oops I think that's a double negative. Let's try that again. I like everyone even though I don't talk to everyone. That's better.

Hmm what else? I feel like I'm missing something, like I forgot to say something that can only be said today. What could it be? Oh! Happy Birthday Tom. ;)

Eliza exposes my lurking. She is so, so very bad.

This is for Sarah since I missed her <3 post. <3333333

Emma's icon of the two of us is hot and you know it.

I have a lurking problem. I'm also starting to post like Eliza, with like one sentence per line.

I love you all even if I do lurk. :-*

Inspector Gadget was on the Disney channel twice tonight. Twice. Who needs that? If you watched it, you are so not allowed to make fun of me at all. It was on back to back too, so I can only hope no one sat there and watched it twice in a row because prolonged exposure to that movie can make you lose your mind. Trust me I know. I was in it. I miss Matthew though. He was really cool.

There are issues with Greg. That's all I'm going to say because I know certain people know exactly what I'm talking about.

Moving on, the new Buffy video game should be coming out in August, which is cool. A lot of us (Nick, Eliza, Aly, Tony, Clare, James and myself) went and lent our voices to the project. Except for Sarah, but she's busy as hell, so that's understandable. I can't wait to play this game because I really suck at the first Buffy video game they released.
It should be cool so look out for it and go get it when it comes out.

*yawns* Okay, this serial lurker should go and get to bed.

But of course I've got to say happy birthday to Danny.

Today I sat around, made cupcakes and watched two hours of Buffy on FX. The first episode was Superstar and I'd forgotten how great that episode was, all Danny-tastic and stuff. Danny, you so need to wear suits more often. Then when that was over, I tried to get up and convince myself to do something else but whoops, Where The Wild Things Are came on. You know, the episode where Buffy and Riley have lots and lots of sex while everyone else is in danger in a sort of haunted house? Yeah I know you know the one. ;)

Then I found some stuff online for Eliza.

And that was basically my day. So amazing and interesting, wasn't it? God I'm so boring.

I've been up to nothing and I've been doing nothing. Fascinating, huh? Hi and a big welcome to all the new people. I've been a lurking, non-welcoming Michelle lately. You all know I love you though so don't fight! Damn, it feels like every time I come online, I get more and more news about who's fighting. STOP FIGHTING. I'll hurt you all. *gets taser and kicking foot ready*

Eliza made me new icons because she rocks like that. I was going to see her new movie, but after seeing all the behind the scenes stuff about it in between Buffy episodes on FX, I think I'll be sitting this one out. Sorry Eliza! I doubt you want me to be calling you at 4am because I heard something moving in my house.

Hi to Greg. :-*

Our lovely Buffy crew keeps growing but you should know one thing.. JOSS IS MINE. Big hi to Amber, Aly, Adam, Charisma, Clare, Danny, David, Emma, Eliza, Iyari, Nicky, Sarah, Tom, and Vinnie. Holy crap, I think that's all of us. If I missed you, you can totally hunt me down and kill me beat me up.

I'm a bitch for so many reasons but today it's because I forgot Vincent's birthday. He hates me now, well really "us all" as he said but I speak for myself when I say I totally deserve it. I got wrapped up in my own stuff but it's no excuse. I feel horrible and I don't even know what to say.

Vincent, I'm sorry. I love you. I hope you had a happy birthday.

I want people to start taking turns protecting my journal from Eliza.

My email greets me with : You have 210 unread messages!

This just isn't right. I do think though, most of those are from yesterday but still. It's TOO MANY FOR THIS MICHELLE TO HANDLE. If it's because Eliza's bored, well then someone needs to entertain her ASAP. She must be stopped.

Eliza, I'm going to kill you.

No I really am. I haven't even gotten 90 percent of those emails yet. If you're keeping track, I have 62 emails now, not including the 200+ comments in my last post from Eliza.

There's no way in hell I'm going to be able to reply to all of those, Eliza.

Eliza IS evil )

Edit! And welcome to Adam who now also knows the pain of an Eliza spam!

Good god. There's way too much Buffy crew drama all of a sudden. I think you all need a hug. *hugs you all*

It's not my place to say any of this, but whatever. Go on and hate me if you want to. Vincent and Eliza, you two need to stop fighting. You two are great together. Don't let whatever's going on screw a good thing up. *sigh* I don't even know what to say to Tom and Danny. I love you both. I hope you'll work it out.

Greg, for crying out loud, stop picking fights with Vincent. Do you have fight training from working on Angel? No you do not. I don't want to have to scrape you off of a back alley sidewalk somewhere. Plus, my spatula's broken.

I give up. I fucking give up. I shouldn't have said anything about it to anyone. I think about it, and I scream at myself for posting what I did. Not only did I shock the hell out of all my friends, but I'm pretty sure most of them are disappointed in me as well. I'm a big girl, okay? We all make mistakes but I don't think I made one in being with Greg. I think I made a mistake in telling you all. Eliza's shocked, I know I stunned Aly, Sarah's disappointed because she wanted me to be a nun and Tom's speechless. Vincent's pissed off but not about what I did though. Atleast I don't think so. I hope not. *frowns and sighs*

Greg's not a bad guy. Sure, Vincent beat him up, but that's just because of Greg stealing Eliza, and obviously, I'm not so happy about that in the first place. But you know what? I don't care. Even if this whole thing turns out to be a mistake, it was my mistake to make. The only thing I'm sorry about is how Greg's actions are affecting Vincent and Eliza's relationship. Just for that, I feel like crawling into a hole and, well you know.

Woo, another mopey entry. Great.

I don't know how. It just happened. Greg and I had sex last night. Maybe it was because I haven't seen him in a long time or maybe I just wasn't thinking but it happened. I don't regret it. Judge me and die.

Also, Greg stole Eliza, in my journal. Oh and hi Emma! I'm a jerk who hasn't greeted you yet. Forgive me?

I've been pretty much hiding for a few days. The last day of shooting for Buffy came and went and I don't feel like writing a big, emotional entry about it like everyone else did. If I did, I'd fall apart and I can't let myself do that. I'm not going to name names either. Everyone knows who they are and they should know how much they mean to me by now. I forced myself to leave the house today and I went shopping by myself. Never again. I got told by these two girls that I ruined the show and that they hope I die for killing "their show". Nice. Really nice. I love you too. Someone needs to go shopping with me next time and be my bodyguard to protect me from people like that. *sighs*

Moving on, Greg got a journal. What took you so long? We went out to dinner last night and talked about so much. I hadn't seen him in a long, long time and it was really good to catch up. And yes, it was a date. Oh, you want details? Too bad. *smirk*
