What does my body do with the water I drink?

What happens to the drinking water I swallow? All I know is that it goes down my throat to my stomach, and then my body does its thing. Can you go into greater detail for me? For example: What positive effects does the water I drink have on my mouth, my throat, my stomach and other parts of my body? How does the stomach process the water? Where does the water go after my stomach? How does what's in the water get from my stomach to the necessary parts of my body? What's in water that my body needs? What parts of my body benefit the most from the water I drink? Feel free to answer other relevant questions that I've overlooked.

Drinking water in one half of the day- bad or okay?

Is clumping one's H2O intake into one half of the day okay? I'm busy and constantly on the move until about 5 in the evening, and don't really have time to drink water. I still get my 64oz in, usually between 5pm and 11pm. Is this style of water intake detrimental?
