Hmm, sounds like a good idea...

how do I label my USB disks so they get mounted as /media/mydisk1 and
/media/mydisk2 ?


Easy. Find out what device node the USB disk is allocated (either /dev/sdb1
or /dev/sdc1), then do tune2fs -L <label> /dev/<device_node> (you must be
root to do this).

See man tune2fs for more detail.
