A craving subdued

It's day 2 of the challenge!
Day 2: A photo of something I ate today.

I made the serious decision on my way home from work that I wanted nothing more in this world than Oreos and milk.  Incidentally, I have Celiac Disease, so real Oreos are out of the question but the Gluten Free chocolate sandwich cookies do the trick.  When I got home, peanut butter sounded like the best possible thing to put on the cookie pre-eating.  So that's just what I did.
It's everything I thought it would be and more.

This is the part of the post where I talk about my life:
I've been working on spending more time with Katherine's* boyfriend and friends, because they really are wonderful and make a concerted effort to be my friends.  I think they're great and we all nerd out in the worst way together.  Something that I have yet to be able to relate with is the passion for Pokemon.  When I was little and all the kids were trading Pokemon cards and watching the show, my interest was turned towards playing basketball and football and such.  Little did I know that I would regret this decision in my early twenties.  Our group of clever, intelligent, nerdy misfits usually ends up sitting around in Griffin's* basement playing N64, Taboo, or just existing together.  Inevitably the conversation turns to Pokemon and I find myself feeling completely lost for not knowing what Legendary means.  Nor can I sing the theme song with them or name my favorites.  They can talk about it from everlasting to everlasting and I still don't [catch it all.] (Eh, eh, get it?)
I also can't count the number of times they corrected the way I say the word.  It's not Pok[ee]mon, it's Pok[ay]mon. Don't get it twisted.
I'm going to do extensive research until I can at least hold my own while playing Pokemon Stadium or Snap.

Are there any trends or fads you regret not getting more into? If so, what and why?

*I'll have a post shortly after this one introducing the people that will be making frequent appearances in my posts.
