sleep cycle

..i feel kinda sleep deprived and groggy this morning ...perhaps i got up at the wrong point in my sleep cycle -- it's been told to me, by one who should know about such things, that we sleep in (approximately) 4 hour cycles and if we wake during one of this periods, our body says, "tsk, tsk, not time to wake up yet--1 hour and 40 mins -- you need to go back to sleep!"

so...this guy's a psych-doc, always quick to point out, "the literature says...") -- but i'm not quite convinced on this topic yet -- i think, perhaps, i should return to the land of W, B, and N for a bit of anecdotal evidence...
