TC TA SO Round 2 Hoopla

by Chip » Jul 7th, '10, 00:37

Trying to equal or surpass the hoopla surrounding the LeBron James free agency sweepstakes.

T minus 3 days til the long anticipated Round 2 of the TeaChat TeawareArtisan Special Offer program goes live.

I heard from the the TA today and the firing is now complete ... it was a longgg process to get to this point. The kiln is shut down and is in the long and agonizing cool down ... I can now relate to the incredible anticipation and anxiety that comes with the waiting til the kiln can be opened up and the contents finally checked out.

I will be talking to the TA tomorrow after he/she opens 'er up. Keeping my fingers and piggies crossed! :mrgreen:

And now to announce the TA for this SO. It is ... nope, sorry, you have to wait a few more days to find out. :lol: You can PM me with your guess who the TA is this time around. Not sure what I will do if you are correct ... but guess away!!!

I will say this much, the TA has gone to great lengths to make this really special for TCers, so stay tuned. Assuming the firing was a success, we will go live by Sunday or Monday. I should have a better idea Wednesday or Thursday.

I will announce in advance of the actual date and time we will go live! I hope you are as excited as I am! :mrgreen:

The only thing that would make this better for chip is if he could see our faces as we read all of his teasing posts. 8)

Moar TEAsings! :mrgreen: Photos of teased faces can be PMed to me! :lol:

I just spoke to the TA, the firing was a success! The kiln gods were merciful and generous!

There is a surprise that comes with this SO, that is going into the kiln tomorrowish!

Here is the probable schedule. I will post the Official Topic on Monday at 9 pm Eastern time USA which will include all the photos, etc.

Make no mistake about it, this SO was produced exclusively for TCers. The TA will share his/her inspirations and progression in the creation of these special SO Tea works of art. It will be special indeed!

So... Tuesday, huh? Did you really plan it for Tuesday, tell us Monday, then change it so all of us anticipators would have a little heart attack? Do you have webcams installed on all of our computers? :lol:

I could have been hovering by the computer for Monday, but Tuesday I gotta take care of business. So you TeaChatters better leave one for me! Whatever it is! I want one!

Tuesday. Our MONDAY special offer has migrated to TUESDAY evidently because COMCRAP is conspiring to make our tea-lives tragic and deprived.

IM is in the upper right side-bar. :)
