best: Cotton bag from Aberdeen I got last week with a cool Centre for the Novel logo on it. I take it to the gym and look like a trendsetter!
weirdest: Mini calendar of Moscow State University by night, unusable as it is all in Russian and I speak no Russian (the conference was not even in Russia, but one of the delegates brought them for the packs).
I'd also like to know what to do with all the name-badges I am amassing (I'm thinking of making shoe clips out of them because I am thrifty).

In terms of fobbing him off over the next few days: have you been working on any publications of conference papers that would explain why you haven't been so productive on your thesis? As long as you've been doing something useful, your supervisor can't really complain too much.
What would your ideal outcome from the supervision meeting be? A plan for your thesis? A schedule of dates to meet your supervisor over the next year? A set of strict deadlines that you negotiate with your supervisor? If it's just laziness and you're not having any other problems, it sounds like you need to prove to your supervisor that you've got good intentions to do the work and have a plan in place on how and when you'll be doing things.
