Yes, I try to keep Specials moving as fast as is comfortable. I've played in a few where I ended up frustrated because we didn't get to experience as much of the story as other tables because we were slow. You can find your chronicle at the link above! Please let me know if there are any mistakes, I will happily rectify them!
Yajima, Alrik is unfortunately right. (Thank you for reminding us, I forgot it requires a check.) Please make a Caster Level Check (with a +3 bonus) to see if the Remove Disease cast works... If you don't get the required DC 15 you can choose to spend another PP or to keep the disease. (People online pointed out that waiting until you get a game with a cleric is a perfectly valid option.)
Im guessing it means anything permanent purchased with prestige.
caster level check: 1d20 + 3 ⇒ (17) + 3 = 20
