Description

Right now the syntax is:

<Date> <start time> - <end time>: <description> on <issue> (<activity>)

e.g.
From 10:00 to 11:00 I was working on #999

Actually the following is also corrent:
I was working from 10:00 to 11:00 on #999

So users do try to use such requests... And the problem is that Orangutan does not recognize them correctly...
The problem is also that the following is correcnt too:
On Monday I was working from 10:00 to 11:00 on #999
I was working from 10:00 to 11:00 on Monday on #999
I was working on Monday from 10:00 to 11:00 on #999
...

In other words - this syntax is too complicated... I could recognize by parts but... in this case the following:
I was working on Monday and fixed bugs from 10:00 to 11:00 on my favourite issue #999

will be added as:
"I was working and fixed bugs on my favourite" on Monday 10:00-11:00 on #999

This time it looks good. But sometimes the description will be ugly..

So I need to think how to improve this syntax...
