According to the post, Moby says he woke up "and there was a complete stranger sitting in my living room." The musician got up around 7AM and walked into his living room when he was startled by "someone standing next to my couch." There is no word as to how long the stranger had been in the residence before Moby saw him.
The intruder, named Robbie, had a short conversation with Moby who asked him to leave. Robbie agreed but then sat down, prompting Moby to ask him to leave a second time. Robbie then continued sitting and said "I might still be on acid."
"So I gave him a sweatshirt (it's chilly up in the hills) and some money for breakfast and sent him on his way," Moby wrote, adding that Robbie apparently took "a lot of acid the night before, had seen my house from the street, and decided to pay an acid inspired visit."
"I guess he and I are both lucky," Moby added.
"He's lucky that I didn't have guns and that I didn't call the police and that I gave him some breakfast money. I'm lucky that he wasn't a violent crazy person and that he didn't stab me in my sleep. I've also decided that locking my doors might be a good thing. I know, who doesn't lock their doors? Well, I don't. Or didn't. I mean, my neighbors these days are coyotes and frogs, and I just kind of assumed that a closed door was a good enough deterrent for a coyote or frog. But I'll guess I'll err on the side of security and actually lock my doors at night from now on."
In related news, Moby has announced that details regarding his next album will be made public sometime in mid-February.
