GottaHaveRockAndRoll.com is auctioning off a random “to-do” list that Lennon wrote.  The list is pretty boring . . . or as the seller describes it:  Quote, “An amazing look into the ‘everyday-ness’ of one of rock ‘n’ roll’s most important icons!”

–“HBO guy coming between 3:00-5:00.  BE THERE.  (The other guy didn’t know what was wrong.)”

–“When [the HBO guy] arrives . . . YOU let him in, YOU tell him WHAT TO DO.  Yesterday, they made an offer to attach [an] FM radio (or something).  I’m not sure what they meant, but I suspect it must improve FM radio reception.  Find out.  Maybe WE DO want it.  (I didn’t know what he was talking about.)”

–“Marmalade.”

–“Would it be a good idea to make sure BOTH CARS have full gas tanks?”  (–Yes.)

–“Put back [son] Sean’s large mattress.  (Today)”

–“Hook on door in our bathroom is falling off.”

–“Tell me about my hair dryer . . . yea or nay.”

The list was written for Lennon’s personal assistant.  Otherwise, that one about the hair dryer would seem a little schizophrenic . . . although either way it’s pretty bizarre.

The note is dated May 22nd, but the year is unknown.

The minimum bid is $3,000, and it’s expected to bring in between $4,000 and $5,000.
