If I really believed in the Sky Fairy would people consider me odd or out of line for vocally conversing with him in public places? 

Like at an internet cafe, McDonalds, a bench at the Mall, standing in line at the bank or grocery store, washing my underwear at the laundromat, etc.

Is there unspoken rules on where and when you can converse with your Sky Daddy? Would the subject matter of the conversation be relevant? 

My mind races at a thousand miles per hour considering what hysterical subjects some would honestly consider to approach Mr Big about. 

ex:  Question to god: Why didn't you give me a head's up about that blind date being a raving lunatic?

ex:  Question to god: Any reason you didn't mention my wife washed my underwear with the fiberglass curtains?       (this actually happened)

I can, in a moment of seriousness here, see where some Xtians would actually think the person was 'off their rocker' and maybe in need of medication. But actually an omnipotent being, I would think, would not be concerned about location, time, or subject matter for interaction with one of his followers.

Yes - Freedom so speech!

Yes - So we know who the crazies are.

Yes - if they are talking to skydaddy, they are not bothering me!

Jesus is clearly against it:

 

"And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you." -- Matthew 6:5-6

If I hear people praying I usually ask them if they are talking to the creator of the universe.
