Does anyone know what the opposite of nocturnal is? If so, do you know where I can get it?

My last few posts have all been posted at roughly 3 am, unfortunate proof that I spend most of my waking hours when everyone is asleep. I'd like to believe I'm not naturally nocturnal, just someone who likes quiet time. And sleeping till lunch. Ah, the simple things in life...

Not that I'm advocating noctunalness, oh no. It gets me in trouble, and sometimes when I wake up just as my father is coming home for lunch- somewhere between rolling out of bed and stumbling up the stairs- I have to do a reasonable impersonation of bright-eyed and bushy-tailed. Not that my dad is fooled, it's just that me seeming groggy would be an even worse offense than me showing up in the wrinkled shalwar-qameez that I slept in. (We have pajamas in this country, we wear them under kurtas, not in bed.)

So yeah, I don't want to be nocturnal, I just don't want to wake up four hours after I've gone to bed at 5 am. Should I not just go to bed earlier? Yes. So what am I still doing here at 2 am? Well, I'm stuck in the Catch 22 of not being able to sleep cuz I haven't prayed, and not getting up to pray because I'm too sleepy. Some of you know what I'm talking about, others of you learned how to pray early and are secretly laughing at my plight. (Aniraz)
