Spilled glass of water on my laptop, immediately picked it up, turned it on its side, turned it off, and removed battery and am currently blow drying it? Any suggestions to help me not destroying it?

Here are some tips on dealing with liquid damage: http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/you-just-spilled-water-or-coffee-on-your-laptop-heres-what-you-should-d...
However ... it's most likely that SOME damage was done, regardless of how quickly you turned off the laptop and what you did afterward. The key problems are only the surface and almost certainly, more damage was done than that.
The ONLY way to know for sure is to take or send it to an HP Service Center and pay a LOT of money for them to run full diagnostics on it, and after that, to disassemble it to repair or replace any damaged components.
And, if the motherboard is damaged, the cost of repair can easily exceed the cost of replacing the laptop -- because (as far as I know) liquid spill damage is NOT covered under the warranty.

Let it dry for at least 24 hours before switching back on again. There can be small spots of liquid remaining even after using the dryer.
So that is what you need to do first, wait and see after the 24 hours if the PC works as normal.
