Kalevala Emjoi Extravaganza 🎉

I’d like the map :world_map: emoji, game wise I’m always working on the seaosn map quests completing the avatars… Real life we did a scrap book of how far did the kids travel their first year, also did games trying to find countries on the world map with the kiddo. Have a world map and USA map in the hallway at home.

I would like to wish everyone the very best of luck for whichever emoji they choose. I wonder if there’s an emoji emoji?

I’d like the cruise ship please. I’ve never been in a cruise but I was looking into booking in in February 2020. One day.

I would like the :world_map:. I love to travel the world. One area that’s on my bucket list is Italy. I love everything about Italy. I have roots from Italy. I love the food, fashion, and the culture. I would love to experience all of those things. @Dudeious.Maximus

Hi @Dudeious.Maximus , I would like to have the eagle image emoji.

When I looked up at the sky as a child, the thing I remember most was seeing an eagle flying in the sky. He looked like a sky lord beast as he flew. I really want to have this bird for me to raise.

After I grew up I just realized Eagles are a very important part of the environment. They are hunters, so they keep the animal population in balance. So I gave up on my dream of owning an eagle.

It would be very nice if I could have the emoji on this forum.

Dear @Dudeious.Maximus

I would like to put in a bid for the world map emoji.

:world_map:

Or more properly the “world chart” emoji as we are all at sea and ships have charts!

This will help me navigate The Pirate Horde around the seven seas in search of booty and great riches!

:x: marks the spot!

I wish for the :world_map: emoji as i like to travel a lot and I dream of a journey of the entire world.
On a funny note as a ghost I get lost a lot and would need a map to find my way back home :yum:

To our favorite dragon @Dudeious.Maximus

Last night, I asked the kid, “Which emoji do you like?”

I showed him the choices.

Kid: “Hmm, probably the scroll right? Because you’re a writer.”

That was my first thought, yeah.

Kid: “But you already have the book emoji, so maybe not.”

True. I love the book emoji. Thank you @Dudeious.Maximus.

Kid: “The cruise ship! I want that one!”

Me: “Really? Why?”

Kid: “Because we went on a cruise, remember? It was so fun!”


I remember. It was the last thing my mom asked for. She wanted to take the kids on a Disney cruise. I’d been avoiding Disneyland for years. She finally figured out a way around that.

She’s pitching the idea, telling me that food and entertainment is included … and a giant waterslide is on the ship … and Disney has its own island in the Bahamas …

I reluctantly agree. She gets excited … and invites my siblings and their families. Now the small trip has blossomed into a bag of chaos.

Me: “That’s too many people.”

She nods her head. But she must have been a mind reader. She knew I was going to pull out.

Mom: “Do this for me. I don’t know how much time I have left.”

I know what she’s doing. I hate it.

Mom: “Let the kids have fun together. Let them have memories.”

To this day, the kids remember the cruise. They had a great time. Even I did. And that surprised me.

She let me believe I did this for her.

But I know, she did this for me.

Thank you @Dudeious.Maximus for running another emoji extravaganza! :+1::smile:

I would like an :eagle: please because they symbolise courage. I messed up big time during a recent alliance war, but I held my nerve and got the victory:

I would like a :hippopotamus: because I am a :hippopotamus:, and a happy one at that. It’s not on the list but this is an appeal to reason :grin:

I would love the musical notes.

I am a Christian Singer/Song Writer.

I have played and sang with several professional Gospel groups.

Since retiring from the Army, I now am the Minister of Music and play keyboard for my church: Grace Crossing in Longview.

Thank you so much.

Right thread this time!

Mine would have to be the :scroll: because I love going through old documents in my quest to understand more about my family history.

It’s so exciting finding out that your ancestor who was from a tiny estuary village in Essex, ended up being a butler to nobility in London and creating a charity for the sick & poor of the village,
Or following the highs and lows of their lives through documents such as census records and old newspaper articles.
Finding out that nearly everywhere you’ve lived you’ve had ancestors in those places is very spooky and also proves that although you can take the girl out of Essex, you clearly can’t take the Essex out of the girl when 90% of your ancestors come from the county.:laughing:

2 posts were merged into an existing topic: Kalevala Emjoi Extravaganza Disscuisson :tada:

So, I wanted to celebrate the Kalevala by writing in the style of the original, after my Shakespearean Sonnet in honor of Summer. The Kalevala is written in a very non-English trochaic Tetrameter, with a bunch of extra rules, which I’ve tried to more or less adapt to English. My poem summarizes Cantos 39-44, and manages to include four of our new heroes. [Disclaimer, all my knowledge of this topic comes from Wikipedia, so hopefully I am not making Finnish grandmothers cry with my attempt.]

Came the Master loudly singing,
“Ilmarinen, come with me, brother,
Yes, and also you, Lemminkäinen,
We must seek the land Pohjola.
Väinämöinen wants the Sampo!”
Three men board the hero’s vessel
In the ship the trio sail northward.
Up and spoke great Ilmarinen:
“Hunger drives us to go fishing:
See, a pike I’ve seen in water.”
Monstrous pike and monstrous battle,
Before the heroes drew him inward.
“See that jawbone!” sang Väinämöinen,
“I will fashion something mighty:
With kantele I’ll sing better.”
High above the gods did cherish
all that sang out Väinämöinen.
Came the three to Pohojola,
On the island sought the Sampo.
Louhi cried, “Mine is the Sampo!
You will fight before the ending.”
With kantele sang the Master,
Väinämöinen crooned so sweetly.
Louhi’s army could not resist,
Each and every fell to sleeping.
So the three had won the Sampo,
From its cave drew they treasure gladly.
Yet came Louhi seeking revenge,
As an eagle flew she quickly.
Fought the friends there in their frigate,
Woe! The Sampo sank in the ocean.
So our story is concluded,
Heroes three could not prevail.

Should I win, I would request the :notes:, so that my chick can start singing.

It has to be :eagle:

The most majestic animal

The eagle is the strongest and bravest of all birds. For this reason, Native Americans have chosen the eagle and its feathers as a symbol of what is highest, bravest, strongest and holiest . In the Native American culture, eagle feathers are given to another in honor, and the feathers are worn with dignity and pride.

To the Ancient Greeks, the eagle was associated with Zeus, who took the form of an eagle to control thunder and lightning. The eagle was also a symbol of the triumph of good over evil.

And I love this song

Good luck everyone
