I did the same thing yesterday while just messing around.  What I had
to do was edit the entry in the database and restart mythfrontend.  I
use myphpadmin to edit the database.  Edit "Theme" in the settings
table to something like "Blue".  That'll fix it.  If you have multiple
frontends, make sure you edit the right one.
