Feegled from twitter.

Peter Harness ‏@mrpeterharness The hardest part of being a writer is the relentless f***ing misery of it all. And the easiest bit is the whingeing. :lol:

QFT, as they say on the internet.
I've lived for over 2000 years, and not all of them were good ones. I've made many mistakes. And it's about time I did something about that.

You censored the original but its still in Q's quote box. My eyes burn from the profanity of it all

for a second I thought you all were referring to Q's use of QFT. :lol:

For most people, 'QFT' stands for 'quoted for truth'. I personally have it stand for 'quite [EFF!]ing true'. :P
