AARRGHH!! I'm such an idiot!

There's this 'event' going on in the UK at the moment where you can finally download the rare Pokemon Mew onto a Game Boy Advance cartridge. You have to visit a random Toys'R'Us somewhere in the country with... a Game Boy Advance (not DS) and the cartridge/s. (Personally, I have Sapphire, Ruby, Fire Red, Leaf Green and Emerald, so I hope I'll get 5 Mews.)

Because I am a moron and this information dropped out of my head, the times when it's near me (Reading, Croydon & Brent Cross) are this weekend from Friday-Sunday - when I will be in Brussels.

Because I'm not just a moron but also disorganised, I just found out that it was in Cardiff last Saturday - 20 minutes by train from where I was staying for BiCon! AAAAARRRRGHHH!!!

Now I have to find out where the hell the Toys'R'Us in Oxford is, and whether getting there on Thursday is practical, considering I have work in New Malden at 5pm.
