London - Has England’s emergence in the World Cup final caught you by surprise? No, of course not, you cry. I always had faith.
But did you back your convictions by leaving the diary empty for 2000BST on Saturday, 20 October 2007? (If you are South African, you may have done just that)
Or have you accidentally agreed to go to a wedding, the in-laws for dinner, or a grandparent's birthday? Are you even getting married yourself that day? (an England victory would certainly add new meaning to the line in your speech "this is without doubt the best day of my life...")
We want to hear how you've had to scheme and plot to alter your plans. Where will you watch the final? Is it at home to concentrate fully? Down the pub to savour the atmosphere? A crazy, swashbuckling, last-minute dash to Paris in the hope of a ticket? (I did this for the semi-final and can thoroughly recommend it) .
Or will you be at the Stade de France anyway because you're a Kiwi?
The prizes for the best story and the most lamentable excuse for not watching are... absolutely nothing, except the adoration/contempt of your blogging peers as we build up to Saturday night. Let's be having it.
