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.
