Superlon Mystery 21: No Stejar, oh why

Early in the morning Eiseemi Laxi woke up.
The tent was empty as the historian's purse.
A mild scent of Mama Zucchini's hand-cream was the only memory left of Stejar Strahl.
Eiseemi Laxi had a strange feeling inside his stomach, so he decided to go fishing to the Lake Pitycaca.

Eiseemi Laxi: I am the unhappiest robot in the universe.
Every time I see a friend, the friend sees something else.
There is not any fish left in the lake.
Just an empty lake.

See-no Monkey: I'm here, but you can't see me.
Eiseemi Laxi: I can see you.
See-no Monkey: Can you? I can't see anything.
Eiseemi Laxi: What are you doing in the bottom of the lake?
See-no Monkey: I'm stuck in the Iseeu Salmo-salar's turtle-net.
Eiseemi Laxi: My Dad's what?
See-no Monkey: Is he your Dad? Then I can't see you.
Look! There's a giant salmon behind you!
Eiseemi Laxi: As if. You don't fool me you ... where did you go? Monkey?

The lake was calm again. Eiseemi Laxi wasn't.
Eiseemi Laxi: Oh Stejar, why? I even made your favourite banana-porridge today.

Suddenly he saw something floating on the open water.

To be continued...

Welcome back Superlon.

As impenetrable as ever.

I'm sure Eiseemi Laxi means something. Something that gives us the key to the entire mystery.

Lax(i) = Lachs = Lox = Salmo, as related in Salar the Salmon? No? I'd better try again, then.

Art historian's purse or any old historian? A nice idea, all the same.

These are things we should know.

Dave; I'll try my best to keep it superlunary.

IP; you've seen something, yes, but it's not a key to anything, I suppose.
J invented the name Eiseemi Laxi. Ei means no in Finnish. Laxi reminded me of salmon for the reasons you mentioned above. Mi is almost me, what Eiseemi always uses: Have you seen me turtle?

So isn't it just clear?
Ei see me laxi = Not seeing my salmon.
His Dad's name is Iseeu Salmo-salar. I see you. Salmo salar is an Atlantic salmon. I see you, salmon.

Now I just have to think what this has to do with the missing turtles. Probably nothing.

And the purse is definitely belonging to some art historian.

The sky is blue and white, like your flag, isn't it?

taigathefox said...

Yes, it is... but is there a secret code or something witty in your question, which I just can't get now?


Dave said...

Yes, just like Superlon.

I also gather those words were in the lyrics of the Finnish entry on Saturday (not that I watched it, just something I read somewhere, probably totally false).

In which case, assume that was an enigmatic comment from a man of mystery.

taigathefox said...

Man of Mystery, I must admit I had some troubles understanding the lyrics completely, so maybe it was mentioned there.
I think he sang something about arockalypse and the red eyes, whilst having a funny Finnish flag-hat on his head :)
