I bought some lumbar support cushions for my computer chairs.

Those look remarkably uncomfortable. I feel like I'd constantly be tugging at my crotch.

Actually, they're more comfortable than a straight fit for me. They don't cling to any funny bits around the middle, whilst still fitting just right around the hips and below the knee, and they're roomy enough to stick your hands into your pockets without cutting off your circulation. Once you go carrot, you won't go back!

I'm happy with my carpenter pants. Plenty of room all around.

I'm going to assume you only wear those when doing actual DIY.

I bought some new hats at target over the weekend.

Picked up four fedoras, One was a clearanced straw, two were heavy woven ones for winter, and one was a nice woven "dressier" one. I also got an ivy cap in black felt, two jeep hats, these are like the ones worn by radar on MASH, in black and gray.

Also picked up four scarves to work with the new hats, and a pair of black suede gloves to go with the black "dress" ones I already have.
It will be ironic if it turns out to be a freakishly warm winter with no snow.
It's northern NJ... Winter is usually a choice of cold & dry, cold & wet, and Oh My God it's Fucking Freezing!

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

Yesterday I received a copy of "Bad Ground: Inside the Beaconsfield Mine Rescue' by Tony Wright.

I decided to buy this book after reading some very negative comments made on the website of my local newspaper during the Chilean Mine Rescue. The two Beaconsfield Miners were part of the commentary team during the last few hours of the Chilean rescue. People's comments went along these lines

"What the Beaconsfield Miners went through can't be compared to what the Chilean Miners went though as the Beaconsfield miners were only trapped for 2 weeks and the Chilean miners were trapped for 2 months" - these comments overlooked the fact the the BMers were trapped in a small cage (and both were injured) whereas the CMers had 3 kilometers of tunnels.
