John Lennon To-Do List Up For Auction (PHOTO)

Posted: Updated:

Another day, another trivial Beatles artifact up for auction. We've had the tooth, the drummer letter and the cardboard sign. Now we add arguably the most revealing of items -- the to-do list, belonging to one John Lennon.

The list is up for auction on Gotta Have Rock and Roll, a site devoted to the sale of rock and roll memorabilia that previously sold Lennon's Talisman necklace for $528,000. The to-do list comes with a comparatively moderate price tag -- the minimum bid stands at $3,000, and it's estimated to go for $4,000 to $5,000 when the auction opens Wednesday.

So what did Lennon deem list-worthy? Number one on the list was letting the H.B.O. guy in between 3-5 -- this one has a star next to it so it must be important. Number two was getting his Thor Heyerdahl book back from Sam Green -- with an X next to it so it's safe to say Lennon and the book were reunited. It's also safe to say that Lennon was a diligent list-maker, considering he changed pens to write the X in a satisfying, bright red. He lists more books, presumably to buy, putting back Sean's mattress, marmalade, making sure both cars have full tanks of gas, and other wonderfully mundane items.
