I need a sniglet

Is there a word for when you are tangentially aware of something– enough to know it exists, but not enough to really actually know what it is, only you have an inkling that the thing in question aligns with your interests in a significant way and you would probably enjoy it were you to look into it at all, but you’re never able to summon the energy necessary to take five minutes and figure out what the thing is, thus bypassing any chance at said enjoyment? And so you just wonder about it, forever?

Or is that something that only I do?
