Oh, I've suffered from depression. I know what it's like from the inside.
The problem I have with Frodo is that even before he sets out on his
Mission, he *still* bores me! Therefore, I don't actually care that he's
slipping into a deep depression.

I would like to kill Tom Bombadil, very slowly and painfully. I hate him.
He drives me up the walls and round the twist.
