```Please post the list, 35 pairs of numbers is not that long. Are you
sure you didn't confuse an o or O for a 0? Or type two decimal points
in a number or so?

And @@ NumericQ /@ Flatten[{{1, 2}, {3, 3}, {2, 3}}]

replace the list above with yours. It should yield True.

Additionally, your fit function is missing a space between k and its
coefficients...
