Oscar the Parrot

Yesterday I walked to the Hyatt Regency to say hello to Oscar the talking parrot. He usually says hello to me but this time he snapped at me! Then he completely ignored me. It was obvious that Oscar was in a a very bad mood.

I wasn't in a very good mood too after I found out my Macbook Pro display went completely black. Wouldn't you know, my laptop is three years old and out of warranty. Bummer!! It couldn't have happened at a worse time.

Then I looked on line using my iPhone and found out there was a graphics card problem in the Macbook Pros starting from 2007 through 2009. So I walked to the Apple Store which is only a couple of blocks from here (I love this place everything nearby). The technician tested it out and sure enough it was a bad graphics card. I was so lucky because he had one in stock and can have it replaced within three days. The best part, it's free of charge!

This video and post was all done using my iPhone which is a great back up. So my day wasn't so bad after all. Maybe Oscar will have a better day today too!
