So let's say I've created several addresses in my btc client and received some coins on each of those. Now I want to send some coins to someone, when I actually send my coins to someone, from what address do they go??? Huh

In Armory I believe you can choose which addresses the coins come from. For the "basic" client, Bitcoin-Qt, I'm pretty sure it's hidden from the user in order to simplify things.

So basically, I think it just depends on what client you're using.

The wallet decides which addresses to send from. It is better to think of an address as something like a payment code, and not an account number.

Great point. I think that this is one of the more confusing aspects for those new to the technology.
