Simmgrin is a word that is originated from the Internet. It's a combination between the name Simm and the noun/verb grin. The original creator of the word (known as Morinphen on muse.mu) used this verb to describe co-creator Alies' expression that she was "grinning the smile of John Simm" after receiving a compliment on the drawing she made of this actor (however in the role of DI Sam Tyler [BBC's Life on Mars]).
 
The word proved to be pretty catchy. Especially it's present continous-form (simmgrinning) kept ringing in our minds. Therefore we kept looking for possibilities of using simmgrin and its other forms in everyday life.
And that's where we need YOU. We need you to try the word and tell us of you experiences. And maybe someday, with your help, we might find ourselves looking in the English dictionairy and say: 'We helped that word getting there.'
