Japanese media laughing at how "fat" Leonardo DiCaprio is... but I think he's in great shape by American standards!
There are 2 guys crawling around under my house in overalls and industrial dust masks. It's only 2ft deep. What a job! #ExterminateShiroari
There's a bouldering gym nearby which I'm taking my son to today. Should be fun. #climbing
The "shiroari" man is coming today to fumigate the house so it lasts another 5 years before collapsing. #Japan #bugs
