Should I or Shouldn't I?

Diaryland is trying to drive me bonkers by telling me that my diary has errors on its pages that are figments of my computer's imagination. Or something. It's highly annoying, but then again, so are a lot of other things. Like the fact that I'm updating at almost 7 am. I should be asleep...not updating. But I missed one of those words that had been accumulating in my inbox, so I decided I had to get rid of it. And I wanted to ask an opinion question. And I suppose I could complain about a few things, laundry, study breaks, etc., but frankly I'm too tired to bother doing so. So instead, just the opinion thing and yet another word of the day (only 1 this time).
So. I have an opportunity to go out to eat at this place tonight. Well, tomorrow night/tonight. Whenever Wed. night is. And I was wondering if I wanted to go. It would be adventurous, which has already been proven to be a bad thing, but it would also be time away from campus for once, there are certain people who say I'm too sheltered and this would be horizon expanding or something. But, on the other hand, it's also sort of expensive... then again, I can afford it, since it's not like I eat there and pay that much for food all the time. So? I really can't make up my mind...hurry up and put something on the message board to make up my mind for me, would you? I'll even supply a convenient link to it, since the drop down menu thing hasn't been working for the past couple of days. Well? What are you waiting for?
deflagrate (v. DEF-luh-grayt)
intransitive sense : to burn rapidly with intense heat and sparks being given off
transitive sense : to cause to burn in such a manner
You can probably guess that deflagrate is related to
conflagration, and you might even suspect (correctly) that it is a relative of flagrant. It is also distantly related to fulgent (dazzlingly bright) and even to flame. The Latin verb flagrare, which means to burn, is an ancestor of deflagrate, conflagration, and flagrant, and it is akin to ancestors of fulgent and flame. Deflagrate has been making sparks in English since about 1727.
