Can you imagine instantly losing the effects of gravity, then being whipped through your wall then eventually into space in a few seconds because the earth is moving away from you?

You would still be carrying your momentum, so you wouldn't be just racing "backwards" in relation to Earth. It's like jumping directly upwards in a train cart; you land in the same exact spot from which you jumped. Physics freshman out.

Yes, but, correct me if I'm wrong, the Earth moves in an elliptical path around the sun, so when the Earth curves you would keep going straight and fly out into space.

yes, that is correct

What if you're floating, wouldn't you lose the speed since there is no gravity and eventually drift away?

Eventually, but it would take some time, as you'll have to loose your speed, which is the same as the earth's speed.
This could be calculated with normal air resistance , your frontal field (which will be "hit" by the air) and your speed (which I can't be bothered to do now).

Me neither, I have chemistry now..

Well, i actually have physics now, but I'm to lazy to do anything.

I feel the same way..
