Scary pixelated laptop display..what should I do next?

I have a Mac Book Pro 17inch..I have had it for about 2.5 years. The logic board had to be replaced around 3 months ago. Fortunately, apple fixed it gratis, since this model had "known issues" and it was handled under warranty even though it was out of warranty. It has worked fine since then, no problems whatsoever, until this morning when I tried to wake the computer --the screen was crazy looking and the cursor was frozen. Super horrifying since I haven't backed up in 3 weeks (I am a typical 60 year old user). I restarted and everything seemed ok except when I went to blogger (as a typical 60 year old, I maintain a blog)...there was an error message that cookies were disabled. HMMM. I got to the blog by googling myself and things seemed ok. [more inside]

Stubborn, blank external monitor acting like a teenager.

My external monitor was working yesterday, now it is not. All of a sudden! It's turned on, plugged in to my Macbook, but I get a blank screen and clearly there's no syncing. But I KNOW that deep down IT knows the macbook is there, plugged in... [more inside]
