For all you folks out there who sigh when you just really need a taco Emoji (all of us), here is some good news: the Unicode Consortium, the group that governs all official things Emoji, is looking at 37 new symbols to include in a new addition.

The candidates are scheduled for Unicode 8.0, out mid-2015, but not all will make it into the release, so don’t get too attached to that badminton racquet just yet.

Without further ado, here is the full list of the symbols they’re considering:

Faces, Hands, and Zodiac Symbols

Zipper-Mouth Face
Money-Mouth Face
Face with Thermometer
Nerd Face
Thinking Face
Face with Rolling Eyes
Upside-Down Face
Face with Head-Bandage
Robot Face
Hugging Face
Sign of the Horns
Lion Face
Bow and Arrow
Amphora (a sort of pot or vase)

Symbols of Religious Significance

Prayer Beads
Menhorah with Nine Branches
Place of Worship
Dhyani Buddha

Most Popularly Requested Emoji

Hot Dog
Bottle With Popping Cork
Unicorn Face
Cheese Wedge

Missing Top Sports Symbols

Cricket Bat and Ball
Field Hockey Stick and Ball
Ice Hockey Stick and Puck
Table Tennis Paddle and Ball
Badminton Racquet and Birdie

Any Emojis you think they should add to the list?
