To get your user back, just backup the original /home/anthony directory, then "deluser anthony" followed by "adduser anthony". You'll probably also want to "addgroup anthony audio cdrom", etc to add the user "anthony" to the groups "audio", "cdrom", etc, as necessary to give that user sound capability, CD-mounting capability, etc.
