Your prayers have been answered. The supreme rulers at Unicode (the organization that writes the codes that become emojis) have spoken. Unicode announced Wednesday that it's created the code behind a bunch of new emojis. Here's what you can look forward to:

  • Bottle with popping cork
  • Burrito
  • Cheese wedge
  • Hot dog
  • Popcorn
  • Taco
  • Turkey
  • Unicorn face
  • Badminton racquet
  • Cricket bat and ball
  • Field hockey stick and ball
  • Ice hockey stick and puck
  • Table tennis paddle and ball
  • Volleyball
  • Upside-down face
  • Face with rolling eyes
  • Zipper-mouth face
  • Money-mouth face
  • Face with thermometer
  • Nerd face
  • Thinking face
  • Face with head bandage
  • Robot face
  • Hugging face
  • Sign of the horns
  • Amphora
  • Crab
  • Bow and arrow
  • Lion face
  • Scorpion
  • Prayer beads
  • Kaaba
  • Mosque
  • Synagogue
  • Menorah with nine branches
  • Place of worship

Cheese? Taco? Unicorn? ROLLING EYES? We're in heaven!

We'll likely have to wait a while, though. Unicode writing the code for an emoji is just the first step. Then Apple, Microsoft and Google have to create the images to go with the code -- and it's up to them which ones they create. Just because Unicode made it possible for you to have a cheese emoji, that doesn't necessarily mean you'll get one.

But keep praying and keep making lists on which emojis you want. Unicode is obviously listening!
