Your Ubuntu is not destroyed.  It sound's like you've installed all of
the MythBuntu packages.  You should be able to find the MythBuntu
Control Center application in the Administration menu.  I don't
install the MythBuntu-Desktop so I don't know exactly where it is in
your menu, but it should be there.  From the MCC you should be able to
select "Ubuntu Desktop" and unselect the other two to return to a
normal looking GNOME installation.

You may need to make other tweaks, but that should get you started.
