Had to use hints for 2 and 3, but got them all. Good teaser. Makes your mind twist around backward.

My mind must not be awake yet, I needed the hints (which I rarely look at) for all four this morning.

I got one, forgot to check hints. Apparently I'm not awake, either!
Have a wonderful day everyone!
