Apparently there was a button to view google in espanol... and apparently I clicked it... and apparently that threw yahoo off too. Either way, I navigated my way through a bunch of spanish to fix it. Given that I've never taken a formal Spanish class, I'm pretty proud of myself
The button wasn't in the preferences. You could change those to inglais or english as much as you wanted, it wouldn't take it until you hit the button on the homepage.
